Yugoslavia’s Authentic Socialism as a Pursuit of ‘Absolute Modernity’
We shall focus on the impact and consequences of Tito’s split from the Cominform by considering Tito’s development of the socialist ideal. We believe that the Tito-Stalin split reinforced the goal of a form of Yugoslav communism that was pursued differently after 1948. One initial goal consisted of creating a form of Communist Party pluralism, resulting from broader ideological consequences of the split. We believe that Yugoslavia attempted to create and implement a version of ‘authentic socialism’ distinct from that of the USSR.
