This chapter reconstructs the disputes that divided Little Russian activists, follows the efforts of imperial officials to manage these conflicts, and considers how internal tensions and external intervention altered the behavior of the lobby and its relationship with the state between the 1870s and 1890s. Noting the intensifying efforts of imperial officials to police discussion of local culture in this period, historians have conventionally seen these years as a time of repression that witnessed the final parting of ways between right-bank activists and imperial state. This chapter thus suggests an alternative way of understanding the evolving relationship between center and periphery, between state and society.

Keywords:   Little Russian activists, imperial officials, internal tensions, local culture, state–society dynamics
