Constructing Nationalities In East Central Europe

Abstract

The essays in this volume make us aware of how complex, multi-dimensional and often contradictory this nationalization process in East Central Europe actually was. The authors document attempts and failures by nationalist politicians, organizations, activists, and regimes from 1848 through 1948 to give East-Central Europeans a strong sense of national self-identification. They remind us that only the use of dictatorial power in the 20th century could actually transform the fantasy of nationalization into a reality, albeit a brutal one.--BOOK JACKET
