Summary/Abstract: The period between 1948 and 1952 is a very important stage in the political development of Milovan Đilas. At that time Đilas launched his ideological and political criticism of USSR and Stalin. His criticism was primarily aimed at the emergence of bureaucratic socialism in the USSR and at Stalin’s imperialist policy. The two party congresses of the Yugoslav communists have marked this period. It could be divided in three parts. The first part, from the Fifth Congress of the CPY (1948) to the Third Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the CPY (December, 1949); the second part, from the Third Plenary Session to the Fourth Plenary Session (June, 1951) and the third part, from the Fourth Plenary Session to the Sixth Congress of the CPY (November, 1952).
