Too many of the older generation of pre Yugoslav experts had too many of their assumptions shattered by the break-up; too many journalists and casual scholars flooded the market in the s with too many under-researched, third-rate works; too many younger scholars were handicapped by political prejudices that prevented them from addressing glauurdic truth squarely.
There are several decent introductory accounts of the break-up that competently summarise familiar information. He carefully and correctly highlights the retrograde nationalist ideology of Croatian president Franjo Tudjman, including his equivocal statements about the Nazi-puppet Croatian regime of World War II and his promotion of the partition of Bosnia-Hercegovina.

The paper offers researchers a new perspective when tackling the issue of politically-biased grant allocation using panel data, particularly in cases where they wish to uncover the simultaneous impact of time-variant and time-invariant factors, or when they cannot apply a quasi-experimental approach due to specific circumstances of the given institutional context.
