The research is based on diverse source materials, which include government publications, travelogues, polemical tracts, and geographic/ethnographic works. This book explores the image Hungarians had of Bosnia and Herzegovina during its occupation (1878) and later annexation (1908) by the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The focus of the study is on how Hungarians conceptualized their ? mission to civilize? . The major claim of the research is that there is a considerable correspondence between Western colonial discourse and the discourse produced by Hungarians. This book should be of interest to anyone involved in post-colonial studies, nationalism, cross-cultural studies and the history of the Balkans. The creation of a political empire also necessitated the construction of a ? mental? empire. Bosnia was ? otherized? and ? orientalized? by Hungarian commentators and was made to appear as a negative counter-ego of the civilized Hungarian nation. Bosnia provided an ideal outlet for the demonstration of Hungarian political, economic and cultural superiority as well as a chance to demonstrate Hungary? s strong alliance with Western civilization.
