Protest in Belgrade addresses one of the most important social movements of this decade -- the civil and student peace demonstrations which took place in Belgrade during the winter of 1996/97. The demonstrations were the largest ever in history and attracted global media attention.
This in-depth study of a society calling for democracy, is based on interviews with over 1000 civilians and students. The book analyses the empirical findings of the research and presents specific sociological data on matters such as class composition, political and social values, motivations and objectives. A chronology of events is also included.
The book provides an abundance of valuable information for analysts of postsocialist transformation, researchers of social movements and social change and all those concerned with the tragic events in Southeast Europe.
