Example text

Precursors of Terror 41 The major difference in etiology between the Austrian and German variants is to be found in the general absence of gain for Austrian society prior to World War I, especially in comparison with Germany. Instead of the unification of Germany and its triumphal march to continental European leadership, or Hungary’s joining Austria in the Dual Monarchy and governing an empire of its own, Austria had to relinquish power to the Hungarians, thereby experiencing a vastly truncated authority space.

An etiology deriving from origins in war and contraction of authority space after the Russo-Japanese War also are characteristic of this instance. As the first European great power to be defeated by a non-European one in the modern period and with the loss of territory to Japan (southern half of Sakhalin Island and the Liaotung Peninsula [Mazour, 1962, 338]), Russia felt humiliated. The extent of that humiliation can be gauged by Stalin’s victory address on the occasion of Japan’s unconditional surrender on September 2, 1945: The defeat of the Russian troops in 1904 in the period of the Russo-Japanese War left grave memories in the minds of our peoples.
