Â Das Buch ist die erste umfassende empirische Untersuchung der Verkehrsinfrastruktur in zwei sozialistischen Ländern in den Jahren 1945-1989. In der Fallstudie Jugoslawiens ist der Bau von StraÃ en mit dem Aufbau sozialistischer und transethnischer Identitäten verbunden, die alle Föderationsrepubliken vereinigen musste. In der Praxis war die Brüderlichkeit und Einheit-Autobahn wie eine Arterie zwischen den Hauptstädten der am stärksten industrialisierten Republiken und vernachlässigte damit den Kosovo, Bosnien-Herzegowina, Montenegro und Teile Mazedoniens. In Bulgarien gab es eine klare ideologische Verbindung zwischen Verkehr und Nationenbildung. Die desintegrative Funktion bulgarischer Autobahnen, zeigt sich am besten am Beispiel des sogenannten Autobahnrings, der die Grenzregionen und damit die bulgarischen Muslime und Türken isoliert hat.Â Â The book is the first comprehensive empirical study of transport infrastructure in two socialist countries in the years 1945-1989. In the case study of Yugoslavia, the construction of roads was interrelated with building of socialist and trans-ethnic identities, uniting all federal republics. In practice, the Brotherhood and Unity highway was an artery linking the capitals of the most industrialized republics, neglecting Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and parts of Macedonia. In Bulgaria, there existed a clear ideological link between transport and (United Socialist) nation building. Bulgarian roads´ disintegrative function was best seen in the example of the Highway ring which, constructed as an inner circle, isolated the border regions and areas inhabited by Bulgarian Muslims and Turks.Â

This is the first detailed guide to the Bosnian part of the new Via Dinarica hiking trail that carves its way through the Dinaric Alps, one of Europes least explored mountain ranges and last true wilderness frontiers, connecting the seven nations of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania. In total, this trail system will span over 1,350km, 350km of which is in Bosnia Herzegovina.The Via Dinarica consists of three routes White, Green and Blue and this guide focuses primarily on the White Trail through Bosnia and Herzegovina, following the natural flow of the highest peaks of the Dinaric Alps. Detailed descriptions of each of the 13 stages of the White Trail through Bosnia and Herzegovina are included, along with maps, altitude charts and helpful tips, as well as recommendations for waypoint visits and nearby highlights. Also included are an overview of the flora and fauna of the region, details of accommodation for each step of the way, and information on local public transport, culture, food and language. The natural and cultural wonders of the Dinaric Alps are the best-kept secret of the Balkans, a region with some of the wildest, most impressive natural beauty in the world. All of the countries along the Via Dinarica boast beautiful mountains, alpine lakes, karst caves, forest preserves and pristine rivers that have forged extraordinary canyons and gorges. Here, there is also an abundance of enduring mountain communities that maintain their traditional ways of life and sustainable reliance on the land.Although the Via Dinarica is primarily a hiking trail, there are opportunities for many different outdoor adventure sports along the way, such as rafting, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, canyoning, caving, etc. The Via Dinarica White Trail in Bosnia and Herzegovina is 350km long, takes an estimated 125 hours to complete, climbs the highest, often snow-capped mountains of the Dinaric Alps, and passes through or near over 5 national parks and many nature preserves, as well as one of the two remaining European rainforests, the Perucica primeval forest. With this handy, portably guide, you can discover it all.
