(p.97) Chapter Three People Between States
Between States
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the Transylvanian home front during the war, where states were engaged in a different set of battles over property, institutions, and people. In those battles, state interests often clashed with the desires and aspirations of citizens, creating complicated scenarios requiring the mediation of mid- and low-level officialdom. Just as the proliferation of newly independent small states in the twentieth century altered European diplomatic culture, forcing Great Powers to take small-state interests seriously, so did the imbrication of states with their presumed national-ethnic population base force states to take small-group and individual matters seriously, even when states did not settle them to individuals' satisfaction. The chapter forms part of a larger methodological claim regarding approaches to history, emphasizing the importance of examining how state policy functions at all levels, and how it affects and is itself affected by the macro and micro forces that inform it and that it seeks to inform.
