"A sobering, enlightening and eye opening account on what has happened and may happen again if we persist in our refusal to see it for what it was. A topical study of a burning issue. A must read." - Zygmunt Bauman, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, The Bauman Institute, University of Leeds, UK, author of Modernity and Holocaust (1989) and Liquid Modernity (2008)
"This unique collection discusses the politicisation of religion after the collapse of a state of diverse ethnicities and religions. It shows that the 1990s wars in the former Yugoslavia were not time warped projects of ethnic nation-state building fed by religious symbolism, but rather pointed towards 21st century conflicts where secular space is being challenged and institutionalized religion and religious symbolism feed competing state projects and popular antagonisms. This is, indeed, a timely volume." - Tone Bringa, University of Bergen, Norway, Author of Being Muslim the Bosnian Way (1995)
