The latest post at the wonderful LeftEast site is a critique of Zizek on
the Balkans by Dragan Plavsic. Frankly I don't care enough about Zizek to
read it, given its length and my other tasks.

BUT

Its appearance presents an opportunity to remind comrades of a great piece
co-authored by Plavsic on self-determination for Kosovo, which has a
fascinating tactical proposal at the end.

And, while I'm at it, to remind comrades of the great collection co-edited
by Plavsic on the Balkan Socialist Tradition.

The anti-Zizek piece is at:
