This volume asks which national histories underpinned which national identity constructions in almost every nation state in Europe during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It explores the construction of national identities through history writing and analyses their interrelationship with histories of ethnicity/race, class and religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a very valuable investigation of major themes and one that should be on the bookshelf of anyone seriously interested in the history of European historiography. there is no doubt that these essays will form a significant starting-point for further work. The team marshalled by Lorenz and Berger have done excellent work and their conclusions offer a fundamental reference-point for the study of national and transnational historiographies across the European continent.'

- Michael Bentley, University of St. Andrews on: H-Soz-u-Kult

'A very important contribution to our understanding of European history. It is a superb work and a valuable contribution to the European historiography and comparative history writing.'

- Jose Ricardo Martins, Universidade Federal do Parana, Curitiba, Brazil, in: Nations and Nationalism

' The history of historiography in Europe will have to take account of this book and its forthcoming companions. We stand at a transitional point between an older, much more linear narrative of the history of history and a much more difficult and complex, but surely more accurate version of the same story.'

- Daniel Woolf, Queen's University, Canada on: H-Soz-u-Kult
