This accessible and engaging book covers the full span of Serbia's history, from the sixth-century Slav migrations up to the present day. Dejan Djokić draws out several common themes, including: migrations, the Serbs' relations with neighboring empires and peoples, Serbia as a society formed in the imperial borderlands, and the polycentricity of Serbia. The volume also highlights the surprising vitality of Serb identity, and how it has survived in different incarnations over the centuries through reinvention.
