Jeremy King

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"This work is an exhaustively researched, well written, and highly interesting account of ethnic relations in a typically multiethnic Central European city, which suggests an interesting. . . new perspective on the relationship of ethnicity and the modern state."--Carol A. Leibiger, Seminar

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"King provides a compelling narrative of nation building in a single Central European town. The story is told engagingly and with a rare freshness of style. King shows a masterful command over an impressive range of primary sources and exploits it fully in charting and interpreting the dynamics of nation building at the micro level within its larger historical setting."--David F. Good, University of Minnesota

"This book makes a significant contribution to a very active scholarly field. It is particularly welcome for the way it focuses on nationalism in one of those places that western European historians like to avoid because of the muddled and messy nature of identities in them. This will be an important book."--Celia Applegate, University of Rochester
