The Rebirth of Pan-Slavism in the Russian Empire, 1912–13

Chapter

Abstract

The Balkan Wars and the territorial changes that ensued spurred the rebirth of Pan-Slavic activities in Russia. Scrutinizing the entanglements among Russian foreign policy, diplomacy, and public opinion, this chapter describes how officials and civilians—far away from the battlefields—became agitated in 1912–13, and how Pan-Slavism as a political discourse reemerged within Russian society on the eve of the First World War. The chapter focuses on several facets, that is, on collective Pan-Slavic events in Russia during the Balkan Wars, and on two outstanding agents of Russian Pan-Slavism: the newspaper Novoe Vremia (New time), an influential mass media outlet, and the Russian ambassador in Belgrade, Nikolaus von Hartwig, who maintained this important position until just before the outbreak of the First World War.
