This volume will be a valuable contribution to any discussion of the dynamic interplay between the ramifications of historical attempts at nation building and the current march towards globalization. -- Doina Pasca Harsanyi, Central Michigan University Six distinguished historians offer trenchant examinations of nations, nation-building, and nationalism in a work that will act as a catalyst for thinking about these protean subjects. -- Joyce Appleby, UCLA This book will reward graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in the making of nationalism or Atlantic history. -- Timothy M. Roberts, Bilkent University It is always a pleasure to read work by historians of this caliber. Each essay summarizes the state of its field, while advancing an original interpretation. All the contributors are extremely well-versed in the scholarship of their fields, and each essay includes extensive footnotes that could easily serve as graduate reading lists. The essays are notable for their clarity of writing and analysis, and I think they would be appropriate for an upper-level undergraduate seminar. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online * This collection, with its extensive bibliographic notes and usable index, is worth pondering, not only to grasp polity formation in the early modern era but also to find a perspective on current trends. -- Robert P. Gildrie, Austin Peay State University
