Yugoslavia: the failure of "democratic" communism
In June of 1987, Freedom House convened a conference in which fourteen emigres and dissidents from Yugoslavia discussed the current crisis in the country-its causes and possible solutions. Readers of this monograph will be able to judge for themselves the degree to which the participants succeeded in illuminating the complicated economic, political and ethnic situation in a country that seems to be on the brink of collapse. However, the significance of the conference lies in the fact that for the first time in decades representatives of the different national, political and religious strains that characterize Yugoslavia met and _talked to each other._ That is no small accomplishment.
