Summary/Abstract: This article briefly presents the intellectual and political activity of three Croat intellectuals who experienced the collapse of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) as the collapse of their personal political aims: Vinko Krišković, Julije Makanec and Ivo Bogdan. Their varied fates reveal to us the full spectrum of thought on the Croatian Right before the creation of the NDH, during its existence, and after 1945. Vinko Krišković is a person whose work spans two historical eras, during which Croatia’s fate was determined within the framework of three different states – the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes/ Yugoslavia, and NDH – and three different political systems. Julije Makanec and Ivo Bogdan represent the younger generation of Croat intellectuals who came of age in the Karađorđević monarchy. Their intellectual development can be characterized as the road to a critique of liberalism, the acceptance of totalitarianism, and ultimately its rejection and a principled return to liberal values, apparent especially in the works of Ivo Bogdan. The development of nationalism can be sensed in this progression as well, which links the three thinkers and provides a constant theme in their intellectual and political activities.
