Title: Language and Identity in the Balkans
Subtitle: Serbo-Croatian and its Disintegration
Written By: Robert D. Greenberg
Description:

Against a backdrop of the ethnic strife in the Balkans and the collapse of
Yugoslavia in 1991, Robert Greenberg describes how the languages of
Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia, and Montenegro came into being and shows
how their genesis reflects ethnic, religious, and political identity. His
first-hand observations before and after Communism offer insights into the
nature of language change and the relation between language and identity.
