Chapter Summary

Stambolov's regime in the late 1880s and early 1890s carved a nationalistic path by applying a project of ethnic homogenization in Bulgaria; by strengthening Bulgarian culture inside and outside the country; and by encouraging Bulgarian nationalism in Macedonia. It could be argued that the Bulgarian aggression which came to fore many times up to the Second World War was formulated in Stambolov's era. The BCP was located within the Comintern, where the particular accommodation of nationalism to Marxism took place. The BCP was banned and its membership dramatically declined. In its first underground conference, the local Bulgarian communist leadership retained a factionist, revolutionary line, which signalled the so-called 'ultra-left sectarian' phase of the BCP. After the German attack on the USSR, the BCP attempted to build a People's Front and organise a resistance partisan movement.
