On the basis of his own previous research the author examines views of Europe held by the Serbian political and cultural elite in the late 20th and early 21st cen- tury. Unable to meet the challenges of the historical moment, this elite has brought Serbia into open conflict with its closest neighbors and exposed its citizens to international sanctions. War-mongering propaganda of the major state-controlled media was developing feelings of xenophobia and frustration among citizens. The collusion between authoritarian government and war profiteers was systematically destroying the lives of Serbian citizens, bringing them to the brink of material impoverishment and spiritual misery. The process of dissolution of the common Yugoslav state is coming to its end in the first decade of this century. Just as it lacked wisdom, political will or strength to prevent armed onflicts and crimes, the Serbian elite today is unable to condemn war crimes, to face disastrous consequences of its own poli...cies, and to help Serbian citizens find their way toprosperity.
