Overview The West has constructed the Balkans as a primitive space and simplified its historical and geographical realities, including journalists' accounts of recent wars in Bosnia. Based largely on translated works, this book tells how writers from former Yugoslavia have confronted this negative narrative in their novels and film. Their fictional worlds reveal an underlying fear of a return to a wild, pre-modern state. Recent crises in the region have generated apocalyptic visions of Balkan primitivism and made a myth into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
