The author gives a review of the globalisation debate in Croatia. According to him, there was no globalisation discussion in Croatia during the nineties, the so-called golden age of globalisation. Still, many articles and books have been published after 2000. The author claims that two collections of essays, Globalisation and Democracy and Globalisation and its Reflections in Croatia are the most important contributions to the early stage of the discussion. There are four questions being asked in these collections: what globalisation is, what are its normative implications, whether globalisation is an old or a new phenomena, and what are its costs and benefits for the small nation states. In the second part of the article, the author reviews the 'current' state of discussion. He gives a critical review of the new books on this subjects (Politics of Identity, The West on Trial and The World Empire and its Enemies). In these books the same questions are repeated, but globalisation is no longer considered as something set in stone by the laws of history or by the activities of multinational corporations.
