The Encyclopedia of Yugoslavia (Serbo-Croatian: Enciklopedija Jugoslavije) was the national encyclopedia of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It was published by the Yugoslav Lexicographical Institute (Zagreb) under the direction of Miroslav Krleža. It is viewed as having "great value" for a person with an interest in the history and culture of Yugoslavia and its successor states.[by whom?]
