Dragan Markovina – Between red and black: Split and Mostar in the culture of memory

The book talks about the culture of remembrance. It is a critique of ideologically motivated inventing of (nationalistically colored) mythology in historiography, which did not bypass Split or Mostar as formerly “marked” cities in which communism flourished. Talking about preferring “black” over “Red”, that is, the legacy of fascism over that of communism in Split and Mostar in the 1990s.
