Đilas, Milovan. After Tito – A Weaker Yugoslavia, 1970. Article
This article by Djilas was published in The New York Times on October 30, 1970, after traveling to Great Britain and United States in the second part of 1968. He noted that the most frequent questions directed at him in meetings in those countries was: ‘What will happen [to Yugoslavia] after Tito?’ His major response to the atmosphere of the “Croatian Spring movement” that occurred in Yugoslavia in those years was that the national question among the Yugoslav nations was increasingly coming to the fore of their political interests, and that Marxism-Leninism was gradually losing its strength and influence. He opposed the disintegration of Yugoslavia until the end of his life, and pleaded for “democratic transformation” and to preserve Yugoslav federalism at any cost. Such stances could not be publicly aired in Yugoslavia after Tito's death.
