    The collapse of socialism

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    The collapse of socialism and the economic crisis prepared the fertile soil for the growth of nationalism in the Balkans in the 1990s.

    Re: The collapse of socialism

    I would probably capitalize "Socialism" there.

    I think I would change 'in the 1990's' to 'during the 1990's'. It's not wrong, but 'in the Balkans in the 90's' starts to sound repetitive.
