With his previous work, the author has already made a visible contribution to the elucidation of this almost taboo topic, doing it expertly and confidently, not to mention courage, in his radio shows, and especially at the Film Screenplay Festival in Vrnjačka Banja. This book is only a natural continuation of that notable activity and a sublimate that provides an insight into the original word of the main actors of the black wave in one place.
