Summary/Abstract: The author writes about the transformation which Serbia has undergone since the collapse of former Yugoslavia, from being an open society and the most developed one within the circle of the former socialist societies, into a closed and completely isolated and impoverished society at the end of ther 20th century. The reason for such an involution can be found in a hybrid character of the former social system which combined the authoritarian structure and the monopoly of the party-state with self-government that was used as a façade covering the undemocratic nature of the regime. The former Yugoslavia lacked the alternative social movements, that existed in Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary, therefore in the moment of the collapse of »real socialism« it had no proper actors to direct the necessary social change.
