Abstract

This review essay discusses Welcome to the Desert of Post-Socialism: Radical Politics After Yugoslavia. This volume, edited by Srećko Horvat and Igor Štiks, critiques a reductive neoliberal narrative regarding the Balkans in relation to Western Europe by examining the disastrous consequences of the transition of post-socialist countries to capitalism. The volume provides a critical engagement with socialist Yugoslavia and an affirmation of the possibilities of radical anti-capitalist struggles. This review examines the critique of transition politics by focusing on concepts of stability, racism and questions of temporality.
