Recensies en Artikelen

"This excellent encyclopedia is an extraordinarily rich source of information on the cultural background of nation-formation. Its sophisticated and effective system of cross-references allows it to go beyond earlier English-language surveys in mapping all European nations comprehensively, regardless of size or power, in both East and West. It is equally even-handed in analysing "Romantic Nationalism", and the 19th-century national movements that were inspired by it, as motivated by an idealistic, Europe-wide cultivation effort for the improvement of national cultures (which I consider to form part of European values)."
-Miroslav Hroch, Prague

"Ambitious in its scope and as far as I can see, impeccable in its execution, the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe is a major addition to earlier his torical encyclopedias. It will become indispensable to scholars in all the disciplines concerned with either nationalism or romanticism."
-Peter Burke, Cambridge

"This vast encyclopedia is the essential resource for understanding the ethnocultural repertoires that sought to define, indeed to create, the nations of Europe. Leerssen has drawn on a vast network of scholars to present the entire spectrum of cultural production—linguistic, literary, material, and performative—that nineteenth-century Europeans mobilized to express their transcendent sense of national identity. In a climate of renewed nationalist fervor, all those who hope to understand the deep roots of European identity and identities in these challenging times will profit from the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe."
-Patrick Geary, Princeton

Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe

New Revised Edition SET

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
This encyclopedia documents the presence and impact of nationalized cultural consciousness in European nationalism. It tracks how intellectuals, historians, philologists, novelists, poets, painters, folklorists, and composers, in an intensely collaborative transnational network, articulated the national identities and aspirations that would go on to determine European history and politics, with effects that are still felt today. This new revised edition includes more than 100 additional articles, including coverage of memory culture as an aspect of Romantic nationalism and improved coverage of various cultural communities such as Czech, Finnish and Hungarian.

Edited by Joep Leerssen, in cooperation with over 350 authors from dozens of countries, this encyclopedia gives a clear idea of the intricate (transnational and intermedial) networks and entanglements in which all aspects of Romantic Nationalism are connected.
