Development of biological anthropology in the socialist period in Croatia is problematized in this chapter. A particular attention is devoted to the 1970s and 1980s, which is the period of a full maturation of biological anthropology as the new discipline in socialist Croatia, linked to the work of Pavao Rudan and his colleagues. Apart from discussing the institutionalization of anthropology, the author also describes the major characteristics of the Croatian anthropological school and Rudan’s national and international engagement in de-legitimating the concept of “race”.
