The Muslim Road to the Communist Triumph in Yugoslavia
The revolution in Yugoslavia and Albania that took place during World War II was the second and last successful indigenous Communist-led revolution in Europe, yet has received little attention from historians outside the region. This book is intended as a contribution to making good this deficit, and aims to address the central questions of the western Balkan revolution; namely, how it was possible for a Communist movement that was relatively small at the start of World War II to take power across two countries by the war’s end; and why the revolution took the form that it did. This book focuses on the land of Bosnia-Hercegovina - central battlefield of the Yugoslav Revolution, home of the Communist leadership for most of the war and lynchpin of the new Yugoslav order that arose from the revolution. The book focuses on the revolution at the grass-roots level; at the regional or national (i.e. Bosnian) level; and at the all-Yugoslav level. It will help to explain the new order that emerged: a multinational federal Yugoslav state under the dictatorship of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia.
