The work discusses narrative models of interpretation of the crisis aspects of transitional societies, with emphasis on differences and similarities between the insider and outsider insights. The analysis deals with the following questions: why are both groups dominated by pessimism (although of a different kind); what is behind the research empathy or scepticism towards the human protagonists of transitional project; why the exegesis of Croatian transition inclines towards the overstatement of socialist mentality, surviving the moment of transition and spoiling its "normal" progression; and finally, what symbolic strategies and everyday practices mark individuals' efforts to cope both with social changes and lofty developmental narrations?
