Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Schulze's book is clearly aimed at a wide readership and is likely to be used widely in undergraduate courses on European history." History

"Schulze demonstrates a high level of competence in tracing the growth of the nation and the state from the time of Charlemagne to the reign of Napoleon. But it is in his account of that point in the early 19th century when the nation and state fuse that his book achieves brilliance." Choice

Hans-Ulrich Ulrich Wehler
This is a work of first-rate quality written by a thoughtful and enlightened historian . . . The author succeeds in combining lucid historical narrative with succinct analysis over a millennium of European history. The impulse the book will impart to current research and thinking on nationalism may well secure it the status of a major work.

What People are saying about this

John Hall
John A. Hall, Professor of Sociology, McGill University
Ernst Schulin
Ernst Schulin, Frankfurter Allgemeine

. . . [A] lucid account of a central theme in European history . . . The author concludes by warning us of the dangers of the mass neurosis and destructive urges contained within the impossible and illusory concept of unity of nation, language and territory. He is uncertain, given this danger, whether Europe indeed has a future.
