In the article "White House Shifts Stance on Yugoslav Republics," July 9, Susan Woodward is quoted saying that in Croatia "the press is now more controlled than it was under communism."In many ways the press in Croatia is freer than in the United States. I just returned from a brief trip to Croatia, after eight years of exile, during which I found that the newspaper stands are replete with literature ranging from anarcho-pornographic to virulent nationalist, representing views that would frequently have a hard time finding their way in puritan and self-censoring America.
