The Serbs: History, Myth and the Destruction of Yugoslavia (1997)[edit]

Judah is the author of the prizewinning The Serbs: History, Myth and the Destruction of Yugoslavia (1997) published by Yale University Press.

Serbian-American poet Charles Simić has criticized Tim Judah for ethnic bias in his book The Serbs, regarding the situation of the Serbs in Croatia and their opposition to Croatia's newly formed government. Simić noted that "the new Croatian Constitution demoted 600,000 of Croatia’s Serbs to minority status by making the new country the ‘national state of the Croatian people’", as well as that "the streets and schools named after the heroes of the Anti-Fascist resistance had been renamed after the [Ustaše] Fascists responsible for the mass killings of Serbs in World War Two".[3]
