Nationalism has been, without question, one of the most potent political and cultural forces within Europe since the late-18th century. Placing particular emphasis on transnational and comparative links, Nationalism in Modern Europe provides a clear and accessible history of the development of nationalism in Europe from the French Revolution to the present. The book situates nationalist ideas and movements in Europe firmly within the context of other signifiers of identity and belonging - such as religion, race, and gender - while also providing comprehensive geographic coverage across Europe. It incorporates recent historiographical trends and debates as part of the discussion and includes 13 images, 9 maps and a range of primary source excerpts for classroom use. It is an essential volume for all students of the history of nationalism in modern Europe and a useful text for anyone seeking to know more about modern European history in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An accessible and compelling narrative of European nationalism. The book's great merit, beyond its clarity and erudition, is its breathtaking breadth. Derek Hastings explores contexts as diverse as revolutionary France, nineteenth-century Greece and German re-unification. Along the way, he skillfully demonstrates the ways in which nationalism shaped and was shaped by key historical developments. These discussions are helpfully complemented by maps, images and primary sources that make this book ideal for classroom use. * Joshua Arthurs, Associate Professor of History, West Virginia University, USA *
With its broad chronological and geographic sweep, this book fills an important lacuna in the study of nationalism. Derek Hastings writes engagingly, and his synthesis, which draws on a broad array of printed primary and secondary sources, will be of interest to a wide audience, ranging from students to specialists in nationalism studies. * Nancy M. Wingfield, Presidential Research Professor of History, Northern Illinois University, USA *
