Asian forms of the nation have rarely been seen as independent, alternative models. Among today's leading theoreticians, there is a growing tendency to take Asia seriously, and to include Asian examples in the general discussion. The aim of the present collection is to build on and reinforce this tendency and demonstrates that in Asia, as well as in Europe, each nation forms a unique amalgam which can be compared fruitfully with others.

English summary: This book examines the construction and political practice of radical nationalism in Imperial Germany as propagated by nationalistic agitationors like the Pan-German League, the Navy League and the Society for the Eastern Marches. The main focus of the study is on the construction of the radical nationalistic ideology and its importance for the political activities of these groups. It also analyses the influence of radical nationalism on the political culture in Imperial Germany. German text. German description: Das Buch untersucht die Konstruktion und politische Praxis des radikalen Nationalismus im wilhelminischen Kaiserreich. Dieser Nationalismus, der seit den 1890er Jahren vor allem von Agitationsverbanden wie dem Alldeutschen Verband, dem Ostmarken- und dem Flottenverein propagiert wurde, war ein qualitativ neuartiges Phanomen und ein wichtiger Katalysator fur die weitere Entwicklung des Nationalismus in Deutschland. Im Mittelpunkt der Arbeit stehen die semantische und diskursive Konstruktion der fur den radikalen Nationalismus konstitutiven Deutungsmuster sowie die Wechselwirkung zwischen dem Weltbild der radikalen Nationalisten und ihrem konkreten politischen Handeln.

Few political phenomena have proved as confusing or as difficult to comprehend as nationalism. There is no established consensus on its identity, genesis or future. Are we, for example, in the process of being thrust back into a nineteenth-century world of competitive and aggressive great powers and petty nationalisms? Or, rather, are we being flung headlong into a new, globalized and supra-national millennium? Has the nation-state outlived its usefulness and exhausted its progressive and emancipatory role, or has nationalism always been implicated in an exclusivist ethnic and militaristic logic? Mapping the Nation seeks to address these and other questions about the nature and destiny of the "national question" in the present epoch. A comprehensive and definitive reader on the subject, with contributions from some of the most significant and stimulating theorists of the nation-state, it presents a wide range of divergent ideas and controversies. Leading off with powerful statements of the classic liberal and socialist positions, by Lord Acton and Otto Bauer, there then follows an historical-sociological debate between the late Ernest Gellner and the Czech historian Miroslav Hroch, the one stressing the connections between nationalism and the transition away from agrarian society, the other emphasizing its variability and real anthropological basis. John Breuilly and Anthony D. Smith, two of the leading British specialists, provide a counterpoint to each other with considerations on the respective importance of political leadership and continuing ethnic communities in the construction of nationalist movements. Gopal Balakrishnan, in a carefully honed critique of Benedict Anderson's seminal Imagined Communities, and Partha Chatterjee, from the Subaltern Studies circle, offer crucial insights on the limitations of the Enlightenment approach to nationhood, as do Sylvia Walby and Katherine Verdery with their reflections on the entanglements of nation, gender and identity politics. Sociologist Michael Mann delivers an authoritative refutation of the chatter about the "death of the nation-state." Finally, relating the theoretical questions directly to the politics of our time, renowned historian Eric Hobsbawm, provocative theorist Tom Nairn, and the outstanding political philosopher Jürgen Habermas discuss, with varying degrees of optimism and pessimism, the future of the national project.

Sprachen spielten bei der politischen, kulturellen und ethnischen Bestimmung von Größen wie Nation, Reich oder Staat über Jahrhunderte eine Rolle und spielen sie nach wie vor. Am Beispiel vor allem des Deutschen, aber auch anderer europäischer Sprachen werden u.a. behandelt: räumliche und bevölkerungsspezifische Verbreitung von Sprachen, Sprache und Identität, Sprachpolitik und Sprachgesetzgebung, Sprachgrenzen und politische (kulturelle, ethnische) Grenzen, Hochsprache/Varietäten und das Konzept der Nationalsprache, Sprach- und Kulturpatriotismus.

Nation And Narration

Bhabha, in his preface, writes 'Nations, like narratives, lose their origins in the myths of time and only fully encounter their horizons in the mind's eye'. From this seemingly impossibly metaphorical beginning, this volume confronts the realities of the concept of nationhood as it is lived and the profound ambivalence of language as it is written. From Gillian Beer's reading of Virginia Woolf, Rachel Bowlby's cultural history of Uncle Tom's Cabin and Francis Mulhern's study of Leaviste's 'English ethics'; to Doris Sommer's study of the 'magical realism' of Latin American fiction and Sneja Gunew's analysis of Australian writing, Nation and Narration is a celebration of the fact that English is no longer an English national consciousness, which is not nationalist, but is the only thing that will give us an international dimension.
