SINGLETON, Fred. Twentieth-Century Yugoslavia. New York : Columbia University Press, (1976). First American Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xiv,(2),3-346. 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "This book is primarily concerned with the efforts which the Yugoslavs have made since the Second World War under the leadership of the Communist Party to industrialise an economically under-developed country and to grapple with the problems of cultural diversity within a multinational federation. These developments are set in the context of the geographical framework of modern Yugoslavia and the historical experience of the Yugoslav peoples during the period before the creation of the first Yugoslav state. The book traces the stages through which the Yugoslav system has evolved since the abandonment of the Soviet model after the Cominform dispute of 1948; the initiation of a unique system of workers' self-management; the opening up of economic and political relations with westsern Europe; the attempt to develop a theory of market socialism; and the more recent tightening of social disciplnie whcih has accompanied the reassertion by the Communists of the Leninist concept of democratic centralism." - from the dustjacket.
