About this book

Nationalism was ubiquitous in nineteenth-century Europe. Yet, we know little about what the nation meant to ordinary people. In this book, both renowned historians and younger scholars try to answer this question. This book will appeal to specialists in the field but also offers helpful reading for any college and university course on nationalism.

Reviews

“The volume excellently captures the tensions, contradictions, source problems, current theoretical and methodological questions and answers pertaining to nationhood from below in diverse historiographical traditions and macro-level explanatory frames. The volume as a whole provides dense insights and multiple perspectives, opening fundamental and critical views into the research laboratory of this type of history writing.” (Oana Sînziana Păltineanu, European Review of History, Revue européenne d'histoire, Vol. 21 (1), January, 2014)


“The editors of Nationhood from Below argue that in order to understand the workings of the nation-building process during the long nineteenth century historians should pay more attention to the 'popular impact of nationalizing policies'... . The reader seems to learn more in this book about nationhood from 'in between' than 'from below'. The book should be seen principally as an inspiring incentive for further research.” (Eric Strom, Leiden University, Netherlands)
