Summary/Abstract: At the root of the civil war and the disintegration of Yugoslavia lies a clash of different ethnic nationalisms that considerably influenced the content of many anthropological debates dedicated to social phenomena which appeared in the context of the disappearance of the multinational state of the South Slavic peoples. Heuristically, the most productive method for an anthropological assessment of nationalisms is based upon an interpretation of the nationalistic idiom in the context of the structural preconditions on the national and global scene. In the Yugoslavia, a process of state decentralization that lasted several decades, as well as the culmination of the denationalization processes on a global scale, have preconditioned the advantage of the particularistic nationalisms of nonSerbian peoples, confronted by the integrated Serb nationalism.
