The Oxford Handbook of the History of Nationalism Summary

The Oxford Handbook of the History of Nationalism by John Breuilly (Professor of Nationalism and Ethnicity, Professor of Nationalism and Ethnicity, London School of Economics)

The Oxford Handbook of the History of Nationalism comprises thirty six essays by an international team of leading scholars, providing a global coverage of the history of nationalism in its different aspects - ideas, sentiments, and politics. Every chapter takes the form of an interpretative essay which, by a combination of thematic focus, comparison, and regional perspective, enables the reader to understand nationalism as a distinct and global historical subject. The book covers the emergence of nationalist ideas, sentiments, and cultural movements before the formation of a world of nation-states as well as nationalist politics before and after the era of the nation-state, with chapters covering Europe, the Middle East, North-East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Americas. Essays on everday national sentiment and race ideas in fascism are accompanied by chapters on nationalist movements opposed to existing nation-states, nationalism and international relations, and the role of external intervention into nationalist disputes within states. In addition, the book looks at the major challenges to nationalism: international socialism, religion, pan-nationalism, and globalization, before a final section considering how historians have approached the subject of nationalism. Taken separately, the chapters in this Handbook will deepen understanding of nationalism in particular times and places; taken together they will enable the reader to see nationalism as a distinct subject in modern world history.

The Oxford Handbook of the History of Nationalism Reviews

an impressive volume of easy-to-read, clear and concise essays ... an extremely thorough and illuminating book. * Gilles Andreani, Survival *
All students of nationalism will want to possess this volume. Not only are the individual contributions excellent, with useful up-to-date bibliographies, but there is a bonus in the form of helpful chronologies and maps showing the worldwide spread of nationalism. * Krishan Kumar, International Affairs *
Taken at once, the book juxtaposes advances from numerous regional and thematic subfields to open up theoretical vistas for specialists. At the same time, its chapters decorate this theoretical tableau with rich detail. As such the book will engage both students and lay readers. * Eric Kaufmann, LSE Review of Books *
