Taming Balkan Nationalism

Since the collapse of communist Yugoslavia, the last years of Austro-Hungarian colonial occupation had taken on more positive associations, as a period in which Bosnia-Herzegovina had the potential to escape the travails of Balkanism and move towards the stable civil society of the European norm. This chapter attempts to put that administration and its outcomes in a balanced perspective, providing a valid reflection of certain socio-cultural shifts that had undoubtedly taken place under the occupation. In particular, it takes into account the transmission of the values and interests of the metropole to new ranks of educated Bosnians, the division among the Croatians, the cultural and economic activities of the Bosnian Serbs, the anti-Austrian implications of continuing Muslim sense of insecurity, and the tension between theories of ‘nationalization’ and Muslim ethnic reality.

Keywords:   Yugoslavia, Austria, Hungary, colonial occupation, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatians, Serbs, nationalization, Muslims
