ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the dynamics of nationhood and intercommunal relations in Bosnia-Herzegovina throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The author analyzes the relationship between nationalism and ethnicity among Muslims and Serbs in the country and explores how polarized group identities contributed to political violence during these decades. He discusses the ideology of the state-enforced "Brotherhood and Unity," examines the role of the League of Communists in community relations, and investigates the differences between ethnic conflict and national conflict.
