Seventy-first: The Rise and Fall of the Croatian National Reform Movement - promotion of the book by Ivo Banac, Ph.D.

Promotion of the book written by Ivo Banac, Ph.D., entitled Seventy-First: The Rise and Fall of the Croatian National Reform Movement (Croatian State Archives, Zagreb, 2021) will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 12.00 on the ground floor of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Split, Poljička cesta 35.

The following speakers will talk about the book: Aleksandar Jakir, Ph.D., Full Professor, Mladenko Domazet, Ph.D., Associate Professor and  Andrea Feldman, Ph.D., Associate Professor. Josip Vrandečić, Ph.D., Full Professor will lead the program.

The book by Croatian and American professor Ivo Banac about the Croatian Spring represents his last work, which, unfortunately, due to the author's untimely death, remained unfinished. Although three of the imaginary eight chapters have been completed, the book as such is worth the entire library. In the book, the author incorporates his youthful memories of the events he directly witnessed as a Fulbright Scholar in Zagreb, his lifelong involvement in the communist movement and his full scientific maturity and strength emanating from its pages. He pointed out in the introduction that the book was not written only for our time and that every writing about the seventy-first is also an invitation to think about how much the accumulations of the communist regime are still present in our society. It is mentally complete, because it perceives historical phenomena from the perspective of the social elite; in this case: Tito, Croatian reform communists, the student movement and international politics. The completed parts were written on the basis of first-class sources from the Cabinet of the President of Yugoslavia and the party legacy from the Croatian State Archives. One of the main thesis is that the Croatian Spring is the base without which a reflection on independence would not be possible. Although unfinished, it offers a model of how to write a historiographical work and represents the author's will to the Croatian people.
