Yugoslavia and Political Assassinations

The History and Legacy of Tito’s Campaign Against the Emigrés

I.B. Tauris 2020

Yugoslavia and Political Assassinations: The History and Legacy of Tito’s Campaign Against the Emigrés (Bloomsbury, 2020) is the first book in English to analyse how and why the Yugoslav State Security Service carried out multiple targeted assassinations, over the country's forty-six years of existence, under the pretext of protecting the Yugoslav communist party-state. Offering a detailed history of the programme, from the inception of the State Security Service to the recent trials of individuals involved, it draws on Christian Axboe Nielsen's unique wealth of experience and research as an academic and as an expert witness in numerous criminal trials.

The result is a ground-breaking contribution to the history of targeted assassinations, communist history, state security services and related criminal trials.
