CHOICE Review

The result of painstaking work in the archives of the former Yugoslavia, this study of Sarajevo under the Ustasha dictatorship is essential for scholars with an interest in Yugoslav history, WW II, fascism, ethnicity, and community studies. How, Greble (City College of New York) asks, did the cultural elites of Sarajevo, "a unique place of tolerance, diversity, and peace" and "the hallmark of all that worked in Yugoslavia," attempt to secure autonomy for their communities--Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, and Orthodox--in a time of dictatorship and war? While none of Sarajevo's communities showed much enthusiasm for the Ustasha movement, the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) was an unavoidable reality that forced Sarajevo's elites to make difficult choices and to accept "the unfortunate fates of individuals" (the murder and deportation of Serbs and Jews, in particular) as the cost of maintaining the community's identity and traditions. Greble's main focus is the city's Islamic religious community, whose traditions and notions of identity were often at odds with the new order being promoted by the pro-Catholic, pro-Croat Ustasha regime. Treating her subjects with great sensitivity and showing a keen eye for telling details, Greble compellingly demonstrates "the persistence of a civic community spirit" during these difficult years. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, faculty. K. C. O'Connor Gonzaga University
