The 100 most prominent Serbs (Serbian Cyrillic: 100 најзнаменитијих Срба) is a book containing the biographies of the hundred most important Serbs compiled by a committee of academicians at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The committee members were Sava Vuković, Pavle Ivić, Dragoslav Srejović, Dejan Medaković, Dragomir Vitorović, Zvonimir Kostić, Vasilije Krestić, Miroslav Pantić and Danica Petrović. The book was first published in 1993 on 20+617 pages,[clarification needed] reprinted in 2001, and the third extended edition was printed in 2009.

Inclusion criteria and controversies[edit]

When the expert committee created the list in 1993, one of the criteria was that only dead people were eligible, as a result only two of the 100 people on the list - Meša Selimović and Vasko Popa - were born in the 20th century. This has raised the question of the relevance of the list.

Far more serious problem was that the fact that the list was concluded at the time of Yugoslav wars caused by the breakup of Yugoslavia, as well as by the institution that some at that time regarded as one the sources of Greater Serbian nationalism. Thus the issue of objectivity also arose, especially regarding the personalities such as Ruđer Bošković, Ivan Gundulić, Ivo Andrić and Meša Selimović, for which there is no general consensus of ethnic affiliation within the Serbian ethnic corpus.

The inclusion of Milan Nedić has also stirred some controversy, given his reputation as a Nazi collaborator in the Second World War.[1]
