The historical impact of national movements in Europe has been dramatic and continues to be an issue of major importance. Leading historians discuss authoritatively European nationalism in its historical context. Nationalism is not of course a specifically European phenomenon, but for reasons of space and intelligibility coverage has been limited geographically. The aim is that the essays should attract readers interested in a historical problem which has been difficult to encompass theoretically and to deal with practically. A glance at what is being shown or written in the media with regard to national and ethnical issues demonstrates the validity of this aim, not only with regard to the multinational former Soviet Union or Yugoslavia in eastern Europe, but also (for example) to the 'four nations' of the British Isles or bi-national Belgium in the west.

Review:

"...a wide panorama of European nationalisms, their origins and development. It also traces the formation of national identities across the continent. This collection will be invaluable as an introductory work for graduate students specializing in modern history, area studies, and the history of ideas as well as anyone interested in the problems of nationalism and ethnic conflict....It is timely, informative and will serve as an excellent introduction to the field of ethnic studies and numerous related problems." Andrew Bell-Fialkoff, German Politics and Society

"...The essays in general are very good indeed, and the endnotes are a bibliographic godlmine. This volume succeeds in drawing our attention to the importance of national factors in the development of science and as a result adds considerable richness and complexity to the term, "Scientific Revolution." Jim Llana, Renaissance Quarterly

"...this handsomely printed volume, containing thirteen articles on the rise of nationalism in various parts of Europe, will undoubtedly be of interest to many readers....a fair sampling of what 'nationalism' has wrought in Europe during the last thousand years or so." Ulrich Trumpener, International History Review

"The great strength of this book lies in its overview of the Protestant reformations on the periphery of western Europe..." Jo Ann Hoeppner Moran, Journal of Church and State
