Ciliga, Ante. 'The state crisis of Tito's Yugoslavia', in Croatian, 1972. Manuscript
The manuscript of the article was written after Tito purged the Croatian communists at Karadjordjevo in December 1971. Actually, it was a precursor for Ciliga's work when he published it in Italian under the same title. Ciliga described Yugoslav crisis as a complex whirlpool of political and economic problems. He argued that it was not only the national question that had provoked the state crisis, but also self-management socialism as a model of state capitalism. He saw Yugoslavia headed toward evident collapse and possible new interethnic wars in the absence of political pluralism, wide democratization and a loose confederation. Finally, he advocated for the demise of communist power and the transformation of Yugoslavia from a dictatorship to a democracy and its transformation into a de facto union of sovereign states.
