Garver, Young Czech Party, 245–64. 22 Ideology, Politics and Diplomacy in East Central Europe Young Czechs through the rest of the decade, despite occasional disagreements on policies and tactics. Leaders of the People’s Party were disheartened as were the agrarian, progressive, and state rights radical allies of the Young Czech Party at the Young Czech leadership’s inability to realize, in cooperation with the Badeni and Thun ministries, the ambitious program of placing the Czech language on an equal footing with German in the civil bureaucracy and in public life.

24 Given the concentration of most Czech-owned industries and banks in Bohemia, one did not find in Moravia a Czech managerial and professional upper middle class at all comparable in absolute or relative size to that in Bohemia. This is also partly explained by Prague’s ability to attract ambitious and talented young Moravian Czechs eager to make a national name for themselves in business, politics, and the arts. At the same time, Czechs in Moravia did not dominate retail trade in the predominantly Czech towns and cities to the same extent as did Czech shopkeepers in all comparable towns and cities of Bohemia.

Equally notable was the absence of any support in Moravia for two progressive parties of the intelligentsia—the Radical Progressives and State Rights Radicals—which combined in 1908 to form the State Rights Progressive Party. Taken together with the poor showing of the National Socialist candidates in Moravia, this indicates that radical nationalism held little appeal for the Moravian lower middle class and intelligentsia. Voters from these classes in Moravia primarily backed the Moravian People’s and Progressive parties, individually in 1907 and jointly in 1911.
