Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly looks at the development and the importance of Austro-Hungarian satirical periodicals. It focuses on the second half of the nineteenth century and presents an introduction on ways to analyze these periodicals. The chapter presents an outline of Austria-Hungary's attitude towards the Russo-Japanese War, concentrating on a discussion of a number of satirical texts and Austro-Hungarian political cartoons dealing with the Russo-Japanese War. The brief outline sets out the Austro-Hungarian attitude towards the conflict in East Asia and its possible repercussions on the situation in Europe, but diplomatic correspondence had a rather limited audience. Focusing on the Russo-Japanese War, the chapter shows that for the shaping of Austria-Hungary's foreign policy, which had a clear focus on Europe, a close observation of ongoing affairs in other parts of the world was of high importance.

Keywords: Austro-Hungarian political cartoons; East Asia; Europe; Russo-Japanese War; satirical periodicals
