Abstract
The dissociation movement from the post-war years represented the first reaction, coming from the communist world, against the politics of Moscow and of Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. Tito tried to become closer to the occident, yet without renouncing his political programmes inspired by the Marxist ideology. By opposing against the Soviet tendencies from the years of the Stalinist totalitarianism, he generated a Tito-Stalin conflict that would divide, for the first time, the communist world. The Tito-Stalin duel would manifest diversely, from an economic boycott, political isolation, to espionage and menacing with the armed intervention. The Romanian communists, led by Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej, also involved in the fight for power, condemned the Titoism, looking for Stalin’s support.
The popular democracy countries, among which Romania, opted for the collaboration with USSR, even if they had to end the connection with Yugoslavia. The two authors, succinctly, based on the bibliographic information, present aspects from the years of the Yugoslavian crisis, accentuating the confrontation between Titoism and Stalinism, along with the position Romania approached in the conflict.
