The government restrictions on inter-state migration imposed as a result of the violence of WWI had a considerable impact around the world. This monograph explores the local Yugoslav particularities of these changes by examining the administrative development of its emigration offices. The book covers the official and unofficial policies, institutional and extra-institutional frameworks, and is therefore able to address several related topics such as the state's hidden minority policy and the widespread corruption and misconduct in the administration of emigration procedures. It also includes one chapter dedicated specifically to the issue of state-facilitated surveillance over female emigration.

Aleksandar R. Mileti'c is currently a fellow at the Imre Kertész Kolleg in Jena where he is working on an exhaustive study on interrelations between state, society and economy in interwar Southeast and East-Central Europe.
