Abstract 'The target of this study is constituted by leading civil officials mainly of the Ministry of Interior (Section leaders and ministerial counselors) as well as members of the local political authority (court counselors, 'Land' presidents and state representatives) in the Cisleithanian part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The research is based on samples of those occupying these positions between 1900 and 1910; in some cases information is given dating back to the 1880ies. The survey extends over geographical extraction, family background, educational path and career of all those in the sample. The official activities of these civil servants are scrutinized following questions raised in the title of the paper. Obviously enough they were above all committed to the imperial state. Still there is a number of indicators that they did not remain unaffected - though to variable degrees - by their regional and national connections. These indicators should be thoroughly researched in concrete terms, together with additional references to the final political options of members of our target group after the end of the Habsburg Monarchy.'
