The Rising and Independence of the Balkan States

  • Branimir M. Janković


The Serbian people were divided by the borders of Turkish pashaliks. In addition, they were also divided by the frontiers that separated the lands under Turkish from those under Austrian dominion. Prerogatives of local autonomy in the Belgrade pashalik provided a focal point for the independence movement. There was also a powerful influence exercised by the national consciousness that had developed in the areas under Austrian control, north of the Sava and Danube rivers.
