Show Summary Details


Bosnia's Muslims always had a key role in Benjamin von Kállay's governmental strategy. They were the community most closely associated with the theme of Bosnian identity and the natural opponents of the Serb and Croat nationalism he sought to thwart. Besides, they remained the socially dominant community. This chapter shows how although the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Muslims themselves felt the lack of sympathy and had a myriad of grievances, Kállay's administrative approach anticipated the fusion of values, traditional and modern, religious and economic, which was to underlie non-Western responses to the West in the 20th century.
