Whose love of which country? : composite states, national histories and patriotic discourses in early modern East Central Europe by Balázs Trencsényi( )

20 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributors to this volume seek to reconsider the heritage of discourses of patriotism and national allegiance in East Central Europe between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries. It results from an international research project, a oeThe Intellectual History of Patriotism and the Legacy of Composite States in East Central Europe, a which brought together scholars to discuss the problem of patriotism in the light of the many levels of ethnic, cultural and political allegiances characterizing East Central Europe in early modern times. The authors analyze the complex process of the format
Anti-modernism radical revisions of collective identity by Sorin Antohi( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last volume of the series presents 46 texts under the heading of "anti-modernism". Formed in a dynamic relationship with modernism, from the 1880s to the 1940s, and especially during the interwar period, the anti-modernist ideological constructions of national identification had a considerable impact on the political culture of our region. These texts rejected the linear vision of modernization as well as the liberal democratic institutional frameworks and searched instead for alternative models of politics. The Second World War and the communist takeover in most of these countries seemingly erased these ideological subcultures, who were often engaged in war-time pro-Nazi collaboration. However, their intellectual heritage proved more resilient and influenced the formation of "national communist" narratives in the 1960-70s, while after 1989 many of these references became actualized in the context of the post-communist search for ideological predecessors

National Characterologies in Interwar Eastern Europe by Balázs Trencsényi( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a comparative analysis of the ideological constructions of national specificity in Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary. Studying the growing infatuation with "national essence" it seeks to understand the radicalization of nationalism in East Central Europe in connection with the shift of the notions of historicity and temporality. Trencsényi provides a contextual analysis of the symbolic resources and available ideological references that were used for creating these discourses in the respective countries. While focusing on the interwar period when these conceptions became central to the political debate, he also reconstructs the long-term historical evolution of the discourse of 'national characterology'. Through this prism the work offers a contextual reconstruction of the main debates of these elites on national identity from the mid-19<SUP>th</SUP> century until 1945. In the light of the three case studies, the volume contributes to discussions of the problem of modernism and anti-modernism in twentieth-century political thought, posing the question of the intellectual responsibility of intellectuals in constructing radical ideological frameworks. This book offers a broad intellectual panorama, discerning the common regional features as well as the considerable divergence between these three cases, while also placing them into a wider European intellectual framework of the emergence of radical nationalism

European regions and boundaries : a conceptual history( )

17 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is difficult to speak about Europe today without reference to its constitutive regions-supra-national geographical designations such as "Scandinavia", "Eastern Europe", and "the Balkans". Such formulations are so ubiquitous that they are frequently treated as empirical realities rather than a series of shifting, overlapping, and historically constructed concepts. This volume is the first to provide a synthetic account of these concepts and the historical and intellectual contexts in which they emerged. Bringing together prominent international scholars from across multiple disciplines, it systematically and comprehensively explores how such "meso-regions" have been conceptualized throughout modern European history

"Regimes of historicity" in Southeastern and Northern Europe, 1890-1945 : discourses of identity and temporality by Diana Mishkova( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume undertakes a comparative analysis of the various discursive traditions dealing with the connection between modernity and historicity in two 'small-culture' European regions: Southeastern and Northern Europe (Bulgaria, Romania, Montenegro, Serbia, Greece, Turkey, Hungary, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark). It seeks to reconstruct the ways in which different 'temporalities' and time horizons produced alternative representations of the past and the future, of continuity and discontinuity in a wide spectrum of twentieth-century social and political thinking about modernity and identity: how the ever-growing distance between experience and expectation shaped identity discourse and political action; how the 'politics of time' framed political languages in these regions. Above all, the book focuses on the ways in which these political traditions and languages of identity were shaped and interpreted by the different branches of the humanities and the newly formed social sciences. The volume calls for a rethink of the usual metaphors rooted in temporal dimensions that are used for non-core Western cultures, such as belatedness, asynchrony, backwardness, catching-up, and rebirth.--
