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.
