The author analyzes the political activity of Dragutin Kušlan (1817–1867), a Croatian politician from Banska Hrvatska, between the 1840s and his death. During the Illyrian (National Revival) Movement, Kušlan was a member of the Narodna stranka (National Party). Shortly before the revolution of 1848 he made an unsu-
ccessful atempt at establishing a new party with a more radical social and political programme. During 1848, as the editor of the journal Slavenski Jug (‘The Slavic South’) he represented the Austroslavic direction, which advocated the reorganization of the Habsburg Monarchy into a pluralist federal state of equal peoples, including the territorially unified Croatia. In the spring of 1849 he tried to contact the Hungarian revolutionary government but this was a private venture. Following the restitution of the constitutional state he became the grand notary of the Zagreb district 1861–1863 and composed numerous applications. In these he advocated the state autonomy and teritorial integrity of the Three-partite Kingdom and its equality with Hungary. As a member of the opposition Narodno-liberalna stranka (National-Liberal Party) he was removed from his position in 1863. He was a firm opponent of Austrian centralism and as late as the 1860s he advocated, in his private manuscripts, the need to federalize the Monarchy. In the 1840s as well as the 1860s Kušlan condemned the Hungarian hegemonial politics and its refusal of the right to autonomy and equal national rights to other ethnic
groups within the Hungarian Kingdom.
