Editorial Reviews

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.
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.
Die Zeit
Schulze's book is clearly aimed at a wide readership and is likely to be used widely in undergraduate courses on European history.
