Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the Russian home front in terms of its integration of social strata to achieve wartime unity. It examines the situation just after the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese war, and points out that the Russian government had a chance to exploit the spontaneous outrage of the mass toward Japan to augment the formation of its national unity. The chapter reveals that some factors, especially the repressive policies of Pleve, the Minister of Internal Affairs, and repeated unsuccessful battles, prevented the government from holding on to the support of society for the duration of the war. It explores the concrete aspects of the estrangement of the people from the war and the appearance of anti-war movements in some places in the Russian Empire. The chapter describes and analyzes the situation on the Japanese home front.

Keywords: anti-war movements; Japanese home front; national unity; Pleve; Russian home front; Russo-Japanese war
