This chapter discusses Tito's life from 1933 to 1938. In 1934, Tiso resumed trying to make his party “activist,” or a partner with Prague. His party rivals also continued as before, vexing him and undermining activism with a competitive alternative. In 1936, Tiso ran out of ideas as the radicals stepped forward. In the interim, international events pierced Tiso's parochial shell. A Nazi coup attempt in Austria killed the country's chancellor, a model statesman for political Catholicism. The Spanish Civil War unleashed unprecedented anticlerical violence, reviving Tiso's fears of revolution. Czechoslovakia's irredentist neighbors—Germany, Hungary, and Poland—plotted ever more energetically against the republic. In late 1937, the partisan, domestic, and international converged in Tiso's life, spurring Tiso to adopt radical tactics in a final drive for autonomy and command of the party.
