Bund der (deutschen) Landwirte Schlesiens : political profiling of agrarian interests and their nationalisation in austrian Silesia prior to the first world war
Languages of publication
Based on an analysis of archival and printed historical sources, the article examines the formation of agrarian political representation of Germans at the end of the 19th century and in the first decade of the 20th century. The author proceeds from the premise that the process of political formation of agrarian interests, as well as the design of their organisational structures in the form of a central agrarian association or political party, was founded on a developed movement of non-political agrarian associations. The personal interconnectedness of both of these association types quickened the entry of non-political agrarian associations into the nascent organisational networks of agrarian politics. The author describes the operations of a strong competing idea – a partner of the agrarian movement – the idea of nationalism, whose proponents sought primacy in the slowly forming political landscape of Cisleithania. The conclusion of the article introduces several possible causes of the differing developmental trends in Silesia compared to the other two Bohemian lands, where independent German agrarian parties were already formed before the First World War
