Summary/Abstract: The breakup of Yugoslavia and especially the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina made many people ask a simple question: Why did this happen? The main goal of this article is to give an answer to this question. More specifically, the article asks: Why did the „eastern“ concept of nationalism prove to be more successful than the „western“ one during the time of social and political changes in Yugoslavia? Although the article focuses on the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, it also touches on some aspects of the historical background. Before explaining the ideological fragmentation in Yugoslavia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the article defines the term nationalism with a special focus on the differentiation between „eastern“ and „western“ versions of this ideology/doctrine.
