9783030550158Negotiating Unity and Diversity in the European Union, Palgrave 2021 (with Roland Bieber)

“A delightful, erudite work to the full: tackling the most crucial question of European unity, it will walk you through the myriad historical, political and legal paths from the Holy Roman Empire and Yugoslavia to the Union symbolism and the grand evolution of the essential building-blocks of the European edifice we all inhabit. The authors united the knowledge of the most diverse kinds, coming up with a most elegant and enduring analysis.” Dimitry Kochenov, CEU.


Debating Nationalism. The Global Spread of Nations. Bloomsbury 2020

“Debating Nationalism is an excellent and extraordinarily useful short survey of key problems and debates in the history and theory of nationalism. Its skillful mix of conceptual argument and empirical detail makes it especially well-suited to courses in political theory or political science that deal with nationalism, ethno-national conflict, or the place of national identity in contemporary politics.” Paul Hanebrink, Professor of History and Jewish Studies, Rutgers University, USA


 The Rise of Authoritarianism in the Western Balkans. Palgrave 2020. 

“When it comes to Balkan politics, Florian Bieber’s book touches a raw nerve. It is an absolute must-read for scholars of the region. Students of comparative democratization and authoritarianism have much to learn from it just as well.” Dimitar Bechev, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

“This excellent new book will very quickly become the definitive text for scholars and students of South East Europe and the Western Balkans. It will also be invaluable for those with an interest in the revival and survival of authoritarian states globally. Bieber provides incisive analysis based on extensive knowledge of a region that he has studied and meticulously observed for nearly three decades. A must read.” Adam Fagan, King’s College London, UK

“[t]hrough his rich examples and in-depth process tracing of seven cases in such a concise and brilliant book, Bieber provides the reader with an intimate knowledge of paths to authoritarianism.” Nicholas James, in Nationalism and Ethnic Politics

“A very timely and… fantastic resource for anyone seeking to understand the reasons why this region has failed to achieve the progress many confidently promised as the new millennium dawned.” Aidan Hehir, University of Westminster

Nationalismus in Serbien vom Tode Titos bis zum Ende der Milosevic Era [Nationalism in Serbia from the Death of Tito to the End of the Milosevic Era], Lit Verlag, 2005.


“With this massive study, Florian Bieber has presented us with what is probably the most comprehensive discussion of Serbian nationalism in any Western language.”

Sabrina P. Ramet in European History Quarterly

“Wer sich neu für Serbien oder andere Nachfolgestaaten Jugoslawiens zu interessieren beginnt, findet bei Bieber alles, was man über die Geschichte der heute dominierende Figuren wissen muss… Dabei hält das Werk sich von Fachchinesisch frei und ist für politisch Interessierte auch dann gut lesbar, wenn sie nicht Geschichte oder Slawistik studiert haben.”
