Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
Nationalism was ubiquitous in 19th-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.
Description for Bookstore
Moving beyond the social elites on which nationalism research has commonly focused, this volume investigates what the nation may have meant to ordinary people
Long Description
Scholars acknowledge nationalism as a central force in nineteenth-century European history. Yet, they have seldom investigated what the nation meant to ordinary people. In this book, both renowned historians and younger scholars try to answer this question for a host of European countries, including Italy, Germany, France and Finland. Combining theoretical and methodological considerations with detailed research of archival sources on the grassroots level, Nationhood from Below will appeal to specialists in the field, but it also offers helpful reading for any college and university course on nationalism.
