'It's all the same, only he's not here'?: popular music and political change in post-Tu?man Croatia
Europe-Asia Studies, 62, (10), . (doi:10.1080/09668136.2010.522428).
While Franjo Tu?man was the president of Croatia (1990–99), popular music and other forms of entertainment were heavily structured around the key presidential narratives: Croatia’s political and cultural independence from Yugoslavia, and the idea that Croatia’s war effort had been purely defensive. After Tu?man, the Croatian music industry had to cope with media pluralism and the transnational challenges of the digital era. Patriotic popular music expressed an oppositional narrative of Euroscepticism and resistance to the Hague Tribunal, yet Croatia retained and expanded its position in the transnational post-Yugoslav entertainment framework, undermining a key element of Tu?man’s ideology.
