Reviews and Features

"All of the chapters of this welcomed volume are worthwhile and crisply written, deserving the attention not only of those who are interested in nations and nationalism, but also those preoccupied with the relation between tradition, continuity, and change." - Steven Grosby, Clemson University, Renaissance Quarterly Volume LXX, No. 3

Lotte Jensen (ed.)

The Roots of Nationalism

National Identity Formation in Early Modern Europe, 1600-1815

This collection brings together scholars from a wide range of disciplines to offer perspectives on national identity formation in various European contexts between 1600 and 1815. Contributors challenge the dichotomy between modernists and traditionalists in nationalism studies through an emphasis on continuity rather than ruptures in the shaping of European nations in the period, while also offering an overview of current debates in the field and case studies on a number of topics, including literature, historiography, and cartography.
