Malovic and Selnow examine the evolution of the press-government relationship from the Tito era to the present. With Croatia the focus, they examine how the press has attempted to transform itself from a passive, self-censoring institution into a more aggressive one. The role of radio, the Internet, unions, and the public are explored.

Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Die Bedeutung der Massenmedien für den Handlungsspielraum der Politik ist kaum zu überschätzen. In Kroatien wird dies auf signifikante Weise durch die Anstrengungen der politischen Elite zur Aufrechterhaltung der staatlichen Kontrolle über die Medien deutlich. Trotz der Verpflichtungen durch den europäischen Integrationsprozess haben sich die Demokratisierungsbemühungen meist in Verlautbarungen erschöpft. Versuchte Irreführungen auf rhetorischer Ebene sollten westliche Beobachter von einem freien öffentlichem Forum unter gleichberechtigter Teilhabe von Bürgerinteressen überzeugen. Tudjmans Strategie musste allerdings scheitern, wo diese sich nicht an die neuen gesellschaftlichen Verhältnissen im Innern und den neuen Abhängigkeiten im Äußeren anpasste und dysfunktionale Tendenzen sichtbar wurden. Mit dem Antritt der Regierung Mesic im Jahr 2000 wurden große Erwartungen verbunden, was die Transformation des politischen, gesellschaftlichen und ökonomischen Systems betraf. Die Arbeit Medientransformation in Kroatien widmet sich vor allem der seitdem erfolgten Neuordnung der Rundfunkorganisation. Die Bewertung der Medienpolitik unter der Regierung Mesic soll anhand von Gesetzen, Erlassen sowie der Organisations- und Personalpolitik festgemacht werden. Es soll herausgefunden werden, in wieweit Kroatien den Mindestvorgaben für eine Anbindung an den europäischen Integrationsprozess gerecht wird. Konkrete Forderungen an Rundfunkorganisation ergeben sich durch den Assoziationsprozess mit der Europäischen Union. Welche Probleme in Kroatien auf dem Weg in Richtung Europa bezüglich freier Medienkommunikation noch zu lösen sind, soll hierbei geklärt werden.

It has become clear that the U.S. media are no longer increasingly their grip throughout the globe: Asia and the Arab/Moslem world is virtually saturated with their own national media output. Tunstallproduces a well-written, provocative snapshot at global media today. His point of view is relentlessly global: he considers the role of the media in the collapse of the Soviet Union, the ascendanceof the Brazillian and Mexican soap opera, the increasing strength of "Bollywood" - the national cinema output of india- as well as the relative decline in influence of US media . Importantly, Tunstall focuses on both the nation state and the geographical and cultural region as crucial levels in today's mass media. Both the United States and the US mass media have now lost their previous moral leadership. Lone American control of the world news flow has ceased. today, rather than Global media, we see a world media system comprised of inter-locking national-regional-cultural systems. Tunstall's assessment is a wake-up call for insular American media consumers.

Croatia and Slovenia at the End and After the Second World War 1944 1945

This book focuses on the events that took place in late 1944 and 1945 in Croatia and Slovenia when the intensity of violence was strongest. At that time, the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ), assisted by the People’s Liberation Army of Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav Army, the Department for the Protection of the People (OZNA) and the Corps of People’s Defence of Yugoslavia (KNOJ) conducted organized terror not only by intimidation, persecution, torture and imprisonment, but also by the execution of a large number of citizens perceived by the KPJ as disloyal, passive, ideological enemies or class enemies. However, investigating war and post-war crimes committed by communist regime was not possible until 1990, after the democratic changes in Yugoslavia. This book is based on documents kept in the archives of Croatia, Slovenia, the UK, and Serbia. Many of them, especially those in Croatia, recently became available to the public, which makes them extremely valuable source of data to the academics and students in this field and which shed new light on these historical events. The Communist Party in the former Yugoslavia was an organization which used all available means to seize and keep power, including terror and mass murder, especially between autumn 1944 and summer 1945 when mass killings occurred across the country. However, in the Soviet sphere of influence, investigating war and post-war crimes committed by communist regimes was not possible until 1990. This project not only covers new ground in the research into communist war crimes at the end of and after the Second World War, but also contributes to coming to terms with the past in the successor states of Yugoslavia by studying one of the most controversial episodes in the contemporary history of the Balkans. Since the October Revolution, when for the first time in history a Marxist party seized state power, communist regimes have influenced the lives of more than a billion people, caused millions of deaths and violated the human rights of countless people. However, in the Soviet sphere of influence and in Yugoslavia, investigating war and post-war crimes committed by communist regimes was not possible until 1990, after the democratic changes in Eastern Europe. Resolution 1481/2006 of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly strongly condemned human rights violations committed by totalitarian communist regimes and the 2008 Prague Declaration on European Conscience and Communism stated that these crimes were comparable with Nazi crimes but, very few people have been tried for committing such crimes. Nevertheless, 25 years later, in former Yugoslav republics this topic is still a matter of political and scientific debates.
