Taming Balkan Nationalism

This chapter explores the complex roots of the student movement in Bosnia. It examines the influence of the clash of values in a modernizing context, longer-term Balkan traditions of tyrannicide, and parallels with Russian populist violence. Indirectly, inherited anger, fear of expulsion from school, lack of discipline among nationalistic teachers, lack of professional qualifications among native Bosnian teachers, and lack of leadership contributed to the development of student movements. More directly, Czech influence in shaping a ‘progressive’, secular nationalism enabled south Slav students to link their ethnic rebelliousness with the ‘modernist’ spirit of the age. However, the chief role in the development of the Bosnian youth movement was played by events, including the annexation of 1908 and Ban Slavko Cuvaj's dissolution of the Croatian Diet.
