"...a wide panorama of European nationalisms, their origins and development. It also traces the formation of national identities across the continent. This collection will be invaluable as an introductory work for graduate students specializing in modern history, area studies, and the history of ideas as well as anyone interested in the problems of nationalism and ethnic conflict...It is timely, informative and will serve as an excellent introduction to the field of ethnic studies and numerous related problems." Andrew Bell-Fialkoff, German Politics and Society "...The essays in general are very good indeed, and the endnotes are a bibliographic godlmine. This volume succeeds in drawing our attention to the importance of national factors in the development of science and as a result adds considerable richness and complexity to the term, "Scientific Revolution." Jim Llana, Renaissance Quarterly "...this handsomely printed volume, containing thirteen articles on the rise of nationalism in various parts of Europe, will undoubtedly be of interest to many readers...a fair sampling of what 'nationalism' has wrought in Europe during the last thousand years or so." Ulrich Trumpener, International History Review "The great strength of this book lies in its overview of the Protestant reformations on the periphery of western Europe..."
