The social lives of the peoples of the Balkans have long stimulated the
imagination of their northern European neighbours, including anthropologists.
Yet these peoples and places have anthropological traditions
of their own, shaped initially by nationalist movements and later (more
superficially) by socialism and other political constraints. This volume
explores the anthropological field between Greece and Slovenia when
political pressures were strongest, in the era of the Cold War. However,
the environments were by no means uniformly repressive. These
studies provide indispensable insights for new generations pursuing
innovative research agendas in this region in the new century; they
also raise deeper issues about the boundaries and substance of the
anthropological endeavour.
