  • BALKANS
  •  One by one , European nationalities broke away from its control and declared independence. o The Balkan people based their claims for independence or political rights on nationality and used history to prove that they had once been independent but had been subjugated by foreign powers.
  • Hence the rebellion nationalities in the Balkans thought of their struggles as attempts to win back their long-lost independence.
  •  The Balkan states were jealous of each other and hoped to gain more territory at the expense of others.  During this period, there was intense rivalry among the European powers over trade and colonies as well as naval and military might.
  •  Russia , Germany , England, AustroHungary were keen on countering the hold of other powers over Balkans and extending its own control over that area.  This led to a series of wars in the region and finally the First World War.
  • Many countries in world which had been colonised by the European powers in the 19th century began to oppose imperial domination. European ideas of nationalism were nowhere replicated , for people everywhere developed their own specific variety of nationalism.
