Kardelj, Edvard

(1910–1979)
   A leading politician and theoretician in communist Yugoslavia, Kardelj cooperated closely with Milovan Djilas and Josef Tito. He worked as a schoolteacher and was imprisoned as a communist during the dictatorship of Alexander I. For a while he lived in the Soviet Union before returning to fight against the fascists during World War II. He was vice president of the anti-fascist council (AVNOJ) from 1945 to 1953 and was minister of foreign affairs during Tito’s regime. He was a leading figure in drawing up the Yugoslavian federal constitution and a significant contributor to the Yugoslavian school of Marxism that developed as an alternative to Stalinist Marxism.
