Empire to Nation: Historical Perspectives on the Making of the Modern World (World Social Change) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fall of empires and the rise of nation-states was a defining political transition in the making of the modern world. Here, ten prominent specialists discuss the empire-to-nation transition in comparative perspective. Chapters on Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Russia, and China illustrate both the common features and the diversity of the transition. While previous studies have focused on the rise and fall of empires or on nationalism and the process of nation-building, this intriguing volume concentrates on the empire-to-nation transition itself.

Book News Annotation:

This broadly comparative collection comes from a specialized workshop held by several scholarly organizations at the University of California at San Diego in December 2002 and a research conference a year later. Focusing on how empires declined and fell and nations emerged in the last two hundred years, the ten comprehensive articles cover the Spanish empire in the Americas, including imagined communities and lived communities in Mexico from 1810 to 1821, the transformation of the public and the private in South America, and the transition from colonial subject to citizen; the Middle East and Europe in the idea of nations serving as prisons and the Ottoman and Hapsburg declines compared; the Chinese empire in how the Qing became China and Tibeto-Mongolian Buddhism and nationalisms in China and inner Asia; and the Russian empire and the Soviet Union. The collection closes with an article on whether empire is returning.
