Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author traces the political history, culture, and parties of the "Austrian Odyssey" toward a new postwar national identity, from the conceptual approach of the instrumentalist school of nationalism which views nations as social constructs developed by nationalist elites. Right-winger Haider receives only a passing reference in the foreword. Includes supporting tables and a substantial bibliography. Judging by his acknowledgments, Thaler appears to be affiliated with the Center for Austrian Studies at the U. of Minnesota. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
