The Politics of Cultural Retreat

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the key decisions made by Galician governor August von Lobkowitz within the contexts of Vienna's domestic stability, its political relations with the Russian Empire, and the forthcoming Polish revolution in Warsaw. As governor, Lobkowitz became popular among the Galician Poles due to his pro-Polish administrative decisions and gestures. For the Austrians and Russians, his provocative actions seemed disadvantageous for the Habsburg monarchy, and more importantly for other Galician locals. For Galician Poles, he remained in their defense against various forms of oppression that resulted from the partition of Poland-Lithuania, their homeland.

Keywords:   August von Lobkowitz, Vienna, Russian Empire, Polish revolution, Warsaw, Habsburg monarchy, Poland-Lithuania
