Abstract

Since the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Austria in 1908, through the Balkan Wars and the First World War, it is possible to follow new patterns of thought in Croatia concerning national questions on the Habsburg Monarchy. Until the First Balkan War, the Croatian political elite saw the solution to national issues in a federalization of the empire. But the suspension of constitutional law opened the door for extreme changes on the public scene. Some actors took a wider environment into account, approaching South Slav integralism to follow upon the ruins of the Habsburg and Ottoman Empires. The Balkan Wars were a milestone in fostering such a pro-Yugoslav mood, particularly among the members of radical youth movements.
