"...an important, indeed significant, collection of essays that examine the historiography of presenting 'nationhood.' There is a shared point of view in the historiographical perspectives of the contributors that warrants the collection being considered as a 'transitional formulation' in Jaspers's sense of the term...[The volume] can thus be seen as a watershed book for our time, opening an avenue for a global historiography of 'in-common historiographical premises,' even as it insists on discerning the diverse and complex perspectives that constitute any particular study." * H-Net Habsburg "The bulk of the analytical essays are well-written, informative and acute in pursuing the theoretical ambitions of the volume...Narrating the Nationis highly interesting and has a lot to offer. It is, at the same time, a focused and many-facetted volume, which everyone can draw inspiration from, both theoretically and thematically. Against this background, the book can be warmly recommended." * H-Soz-u-Kult A sustained and systematic study of the construction, erosion and reconstruction of national histories across a wide variety of states is highly topical and extremely relevant in the context of the accelerating processes of Europeanization and globalization. However, as demonstrated in this volume, histories have not, of course, only been written by professional historians. Drawing on studies from a number of different European nation states, the contributors to this volume present a systematic exploration, of the representation of the national paradigm. In doing so, they contextualize the European experience in a more global framework by providing comparative perspectives on the national histories in the Far East and North America. As such, they expose the complex variables and diverse actors that lie behind the narration of a nation.
