Europe's New Nationalism : States and Minorities in Conflict
The end of the Cold War has witnessed the re-emergence of nationalism as a major force in Europe. The collapse of Yugoslavia, the newly won independence of the Baltic states, the unification of Germany, the wars in Bosnia and Georgia, and the strength of xenophobic politics in France all attest to the salience of nationalism. What explains nationalism's renewed importance in Europe? What distinguishes the various expressions of nationalism across Europe today? Why is nationalism associated with conflict in some cases and not in others? Is nationalism enhancing or undermining the prospects for democratic development within Europe? How should Europe respond to the challenges posed by nationalism? In this book, 14 leading scholars and journalists from across the region reflect on the meaning and implications of Europe's 'new nationalism'.
