Nationalizing Empires

Edited by Stefan Berger, director of the Institute of Social History at Ruhr University and Alexei Miller, visiting professor in CEU’s Department of History, this collection of essays by outstanding scholars includes case studies of Europe-based empires, whether those of Bourbon Spain, Napoleonic France, Italy, Great Britain, Oldenburg Denmark, Germany, Habsburg Austro-Hungary, Late-Ottoman Turkey or Romanov Russia. The authors focus their attention on nation-building in the imperial core and maintain that the 19th century, rather than the age of nation-states, was the age of empires and nationalism.
