Pilar’s Work The South Slav Question: on the Origin of the Manuscript and the Fate of the first (Viennese) Edition

Institute of Social Sciences IVO PILAR
Publication Date


Until now, the literature accompanying I. Pilar’s best known book, published in Vienna in 1918 under the pseudonym L. v. Südland and usually referred to by the shortened title of “The South Slav Question”, has been fraught with a series of issues. On the basis of new material, the author has set himself the task of describing how the work came into existence, and tracing the fate of the first, “Viennese” edition. He has disproved the claim, made in the existing literature, that there were two (different) “Viennese” editions and examined the issue of why this book of Pilar’s is so rare today.
