The coalition, which includes the Social Democrats, under Ivica Racan, and Social Liberals, led by Drazen Budisa, have promised to build bridges to the West, which, according to historian Ivo Goldstein, is good news for Croatia's 2,000 Jews.
"The Jewish population wants to be part of an integration of states because we want to have more intensive contact with other communities," said Goldstein, a professor of Jewish history at the University of Zagreb.
Goldstein was particularly elated by the results - his father, Slavko Goldstein, was a founder of the Social Liberals and was the party's first leader, from 1989 to 1990. - Croatia, 20 April 2010 [cached]

A Good and Balanced Overview- April 26, 2000 Reviewer: richard_t from Europe
Goldstein, a professor at the University of Zagreb, wrote this history specifically to be translated for non-Croatian readers. Therefore its brevity must be considered a virtue, as most readers would not have the patience nor the interest to wade through hundreds of pages on medieval Balkan history. However, it does not provide anything more than a series of dates and vaguely connected events until hitting its stride in the 20th century.
Left largely untold are the fascinating stories of Croatia's more distant past. Tomislav, the first Croatian king who ushered in early westernizing influences merits but six vague lines, while Jelacic, the tragic nineteenth-century hero gets more attention, but Goldstein fails to describe either his military campaigns or the fascinating story of his decline and death.
Goldstein is clearly a Croatian patriot, but he is no nationalist and no apologist for Tudjman's corrupt and hateful brand of politics. He criticizes Tudjman and Milosevic and the Krajina Serbs equally.
Goldstein places the most emphasis on the twentieth century, however, since he intended this book for foreign readers, who he correctly assumed are more interested in recent history and the background to the current events so extensively covered in the news over the last decade. This is actually ironic, since Goldstein is one of Croatia's foremost authorities on medieval history and the Byzantine Empire. Indeed, his chapters on medieval and early modern Croatian history are probably the best short survey of this period in Croatia in any language. This takes nothing away from the last few chapters.
