Some Serbian Views of the Activity of Dr. Anton Korošec (1918-1940)

  • Momčilo Zečević


On the basis of newspaper and journal articles as well as memoirs the author illustrates the attitude of Serbia's political parties and eminent personalities towards Dr. Anton Korošec and his political activity in Belgrade. An important politician of a national format, Dr. Korošec was active within a new political setting that he had been able to adjust to very well. He sought support from the king and the radical circles, while he supported the Serbian side in the fundamental Yugoslav conflict between the Serbs and the Croats, even though he himself had advocated the concept of autonomy that the official Serbian political parties had severely criticized.
