The Untold Stories of Yugoslavia and Nonalignment
A recently declassified collection of US intelligence estimates concerning Yugoslavia offers some promise of new information. Similarly, the memoirs of statesmen reveal a good of anecdotal information that may revise such standard works as Alvin Rubinstein’s Yugoslavia and the Non-aligned World. This book and others written about 40 years ago form the basis of our understanding of nonalignment as a historic movement. It is likely that this literature and the voluminous public material produced by the movement’s supporters like Yugoslavia can prompt reconsideration. Indeed, any reexamination of socialist Yugoslavia more than 20 years after its collapse is likely to create a different perspective on the relatively complex diplomatic questions that constitute “nonalignment” as we understand it.
