Edinburgh University Press

This chapter offers a detailed account of Tomáš Masaryk’s extensive attempts to steer nationalities discourse in Britain, with a view to securing the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the creation of the new Czecho-Slovakian state. It describes Masaryk’s relationship with British supporters such as Robert William Seton-Watson, and their creation of the journal The New Europe as a platform for advocating total victory in the war, and articulating the cultural right to independent existence of the constituent nations of the Habsburg Empire.

Keywords:   Tomáš Masaryk, Robert William Seton-Watson, The New Europe, Czechoslovakia, Austria-Hungary, Habsburg Empire, nationalities discourse
