Abstract (EN)History, like economy is and should be « in debate » becausethe reality is and will alwaysbe, in human societies, a conflictingone, with – like Walter Benjamin states non linear evolution, with several « possibles » and historical bifurcations. The dominant analysis, in different periods and contexts, are full of « holes » suppressing alternatives and the non recognized memories. Historians like economists arenot « neutral », they select facts. But they should make explicit their choices and criteria, and be «non aligned ». I tryed to hold such a positition in the research on Yugoslavia, during the Cold War – under the condition of resistance to « campism » which meant a consistent « nonalignment », with explicit criteria... After the fall of the Berlin Wall new kinds of official history and « autistic economy » tends to emerge – that I interpret as amore obscure form of new « Cold War ». More than ever historians and economists cannot be « neutral » but should be nonaligned and resisting to « oneand unique (official) thought ». I will first make explicit theway I implemented my nonalignment under the first ColdWar, in my study on the Titoit regime andeconomic reforms. Than I will give examples of that new ColdWar and of resistances to it in both fields of my own research crossing history and economics.
