Milenko M. Vukičević: from Serbianism to Yugoslavism

  • Charles Jelavich
Part of the Studies in Russia and East Europe book series (SREE)


In 1918 Robert J. Kerner, who became one of America’s leading authorities on Yugoslavia, wrote an article entitled The Jugo-Slav Movement’ the first sentence of which read ‘If there are miracles in history, the Jugo-Slav movement is a miracle.’ After surveying the main trends in south Slavonic history, he concluded his article by stressing that:

Religious differences, political rivalries, linguistic quibbles and the petty foibles of centuries appeared to be forgotten in the three short years which elapsed from Kumanovo to the destruction of Serbia in 1915. The Greater Serbia idea had really perished in 1915 as had the Greater Croatia idea in 1878. In their place emerged Jugo-Slavia. … Nationalism had proved stronger than opposing religions, more cohesive than political and economic interests. … The Jugo-Slav movement had ended in the formation of a nation which is neither a doctrine, nor a dream but a reality.1
