Nacionalizam i politizacija historije u Jugoslaviji

Izdavačka kuća Palgrave Macmillan je obhavila knjigu „Nationalism and the Politicization of History in the Former Yugoslavia“, koju su uredinle Gorana Ognjenović i Jasna Jozelić. Knjiga istražuje kako su nacionalisti u Jugoslaviji politizirali historiju i historijske narative u političke svrhe. Kako je u svojoj recenziji naglasila Sabina Ruther, knjiga „this book is very timely: the instrumentalization of history for political goals has become a pressing issue and worrisome feature of many polities, to the point of challenging even the most consolidated democracies. Focusing on Yugoslavia’s fragile successor states, the authors explore plurifold analytical levels, including local, regional, transnational, European and global perspectives. The authors comprehensively demonstrate how politicizing history, in the postwar and postcommunist societies of what was once Yugoslavia, has prevented both reconciliation and democratization“.

Knjiga sadrži 18 članaka koji govore o različitim perspektivama politizacije historije. Za historiografiju u Bosni i Hercegovini posebno su važni radovi Francine Friedman („Thrice Plundered: The Politics of Restitution with Regard to the Jews of Bosnia and Herzegovina“), Nevena Anđelića („Himmler’s SS Handžar Division“) i Jasne Jozelić („Reconfiguring and Imposing Identity: Politicization of Identity in Bosnia and Herzegovina“), te članak „Mass Myths to Mass Graves: Politicizing Memory in Serbia as a Prelude to Genocide in Bosnia“ čiji su autori Ron Adams i Haris Halilović.
