What People are Saying About This

With its focus on a neglected social group, the Bohemian nobility, Noble Nationalists makes an important contribution to the fields of Habsburg, German, and Eastern European history as well as to interdisciplinary nationalism studies. Eagle Glassheim intertwines political and social history in an engaging manner as he demonstrates the persistence of multiple­-sometimes conflicting, sometimes overlapping­-identities.

Noble Nationalists adds a great deal to our understanding of the balance between competing popular and dynastic political forces in the Austrian half of the Dual Monarchy. It has much to contribute to ongoing debates about the nature and mechanics of nationalism and nation building in Habsburg Central Europe. Glassheim suggests the many ways in which elite actors attempted to recapture the imagined security of the pre-1918 world while taking into account the demands of a populist (if not democratic), nationalized age of mass politics.
