UNSPECIFIED. (2002) A trio of Hungarian Balkanists: Beni Kallay, Istvan Burian and Lajos Thalloczy in the age of high nationalism. SLAVONIC AND EAST EUROPEAN REVIEW, 80 (2). pp. 234-266. ISSN 0037-6795Full text not available from this repository.
This article discusses three Hungarian scholar-politicians of the Dualist period. Beni Kallay, Istvan Burian and Lajos Thalloczy, whose careers were linked through their Slavic interests and specifically through their role in the Austro-Hungarian administration of Bosnia-Herzegovina. It seeks to show how difficult it was in the age of nationalism even for the few who isolated themselves from their fellow countrymen through their interests in foreign cultures to escape the pull of national preoccupations and ambitions. In the case of the Hungarian Balkanists studied the dilemma was compounded by Dualism and the inherent difficulties of constructing a plausible Hungarian Balkan policy under the Habsburg aegis. The article also posits a passage from a (highly qualified) liberal nationalism of the mid-nineteenth-century to what the writer calls the 'high nationalism' of the immediate pre-1914 decades, characterized by growing pessimism about reconciliation of different national interests, expressing itself in the cases studies in its protagonists' relations with Serbdom.
