Victims and Heroes

Abstract

The anthropological concepts mentality and national character are briefly discussed. Research of national character in South Slavic ethnologies is presented along with the contrasting models produced by the Serbian and Croat ethno-anthropologists in the first part of this century. Consequently, heroism as the dominant value and its role in contemporary national politics and in the construction of identity has been questioned.
