Medjugorje: Religion, Politics, and Violence in Rural Bosnia
VU Uitgeverij, 1. jan. 1995 - 139 strani
Medjugorje, fifteen years ago an out-of-the-way peasant village in Bosnia Hercegovina, is today a Marian devotion centre of global repute. Based on some ten years of fieldwork in the region, the author gives a detailed account of that transformation process, in which religion, politics and violence are closely intertwined. Adopting a long-term historical approach the description also open up surprisingly new perspectives on today's problems and atrocities in Bosnia Hercegovina.
