Who we are : a history of popular nationalism by Robert H Wiebe( Book )

How did educated Westerners make an enemy of an inspiration that has changed the lives of billions? Why is nationalism synonymous with atavism, fanaticism, xenophobia, and bloodshed? In this book, Robert Wiebe argues that we too often conflate nationalism with what states do in its name. By indiscriminately blaming it for terrorism, ethnic cleansing, and military thuggery, we avoid reckoning with nationalism for what it is: the desire among people who believe they share a common ancestry and destiny to live under their own government on land sacred to their history. For at least a century and a half, nationalism has been an effective answer to basic questions of identity and connection in a fluid world. It quiets fears of cultural disintegration and allows people to pursue closer bonds and seek freedom. By looking at nationalism in this clearer light and by juxtaposing it with its two great companion and competitor movements--democracy and socialism--Wiebe is able to understand nationalism's deep appeal and assess its historical record. Because Europeans and their kin abroad monopolized nationalism before World War I, Wiebe begins with their story, identifying migration as a motive force and examining related developments in state building, race theory, church ambition, and linguistic innovation. After case studies of Irish, German, and Jewish nationalism, Wiebe moves to the United States. He discusses America's distinctive place in transatlantic history, emphasizing its liberal government, cultural diversity, and racism. He then traces nationalism's spread worldwide, evaluating its adaptability and limits on that adaptability. The state-dominated nationalism of Japan, Turkey, and Mexico are considered, followed by Pan-Africanism and Nigeria's anticolonial-postcolonial nationalism. Finally, Wiebe shows how nationalism became integrated into a genuinely global process by the 1970s, only to find itself competing at a disadvantage with god- and gun-driven alternatives

La democrazia americana by Robert H Wiebe( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in Italian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wiebe traccia un resoconto delle vicende ormai bisecolari della democrazia in America portando avanti al tempo stesso una riflessione sui suoi attuali problemi. Nella ricostruzione dell'autore, ciò che ha caratterizzato la democrazia americana dall'inizio dell'Ottocento è, come indica il titolo originale del libro, il "Self-rule", l'autogoverno della comunità e degli individui. La democrazia americana insomma nasce popolare, populista, decentralizzata, con una forte resistenza al potere istituzionalizzato. Questo modello democratico è stato travolto nei decenni a cavallo fra Otto e Novecento dal processo di modernizzazione, che ha portato a una democrazia centralizzata e gerarchica, al proliferare da un lato dei gruppi di pressione e delle lobbies e dall'altro al prevalere di una cittadinanza apatica, individualista ma non partecipativa
