    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.
