Nationalism at the Edge: The Jüdische Volksrat of Habsburg Bukovina

Nationalism at the Edge: The Jüdische Volksrat of Habsburg Bukovina Abstract The Jüdische Volksrat was the final expression of a distinctive brand of Jewish Volkspolitik that flourished in the final decades of Habsburg Austria. The article is a case study of a political culture that derived from two related contexts: Jewish nationalism – in its east central European variation – and the larger framework of Habsburg ethnic and nationalist politics. The Volksrat was the centerpiece of an attempt to put the Zionist house in Bukovina in order, and the article is also a first foray into the history of Bukovina Zionism. It is a story of famous success and infamous failure and conflict. If the stage was parochial, the issues at stake were not: power, autonomy, democracy, Zionism and Jewish nationalism — all were at play and all had local, regional and imperial implications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aschkenas de Gruyter

Abstract

Abstract The Jüdische Volksrat was the final expression of a distinctive brand of Jewish Volkspolitik that flourished in the final decades of Habsburg Austria. The article is a case study of a political culture that derived from two related contexts: Jewish nationalism – in its east central European variation – and the larger framework of Habsburg ethnic and nationalist politics. The Volksrat was the centerpiece of an attempt to put the Zionist house in Bukovina in order, and the article is also a first foray into the history of Bukovina Zionism. It is a story of famous success and infamous failure and conflict. If the stage was parochial, the issues at stake were not: power, autonomy, democracy, Zionism and Jewish nationalism — all were at play and all had local, regional and imperial implications.
