Excerpt from New Nationalisms in Europe: Hearings Before the Subcommittee on European Affairs of the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session; September 21 and December 1, 1994 The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 2:15 p.m., in room SD-419, Dirksen Senate Office Building, Hon. Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding. Present: Senator Biden. Senator Biden. The committee will come to order. Among the results of the end of the cold war and the collapse of communism has been the emergence or, I might say, the reemergence of nationalism in many countries of Europe, both East and West. By definition, the characteristics of nationalism are unique to the particular nation involved. Yet, the political, economic and psychological factors inducing the reemergence of national feelings are common to all of the formerly Communist states, and some of them are shared by western European countries. Often, nationalism, which for significant periods of history in Europe, played a healthy role in economic and political development, is confused with chauvinism or ultranationalism. More bluntly stated, the horrors that are occurring in Bosnia can be viewed as a perversion of nationalism, not as an intrinsic part of the phenomenon. Nonetheless, Bosnia and similar examples of ethnically and nationally based violence elsewhere are warning signs, cautionary markers to politicians not to abuse people's legitimate pride in their heritage. Most importantly, the nationalist movements currently growing in strength in many parts of Europe are of vital concern to U.S. foreign policy. With this connection in mind, the Subcommittee on European Affairs will be hearing from a number of university as well as other experts and holding a series of hearings on new nationalisms in Europe. For the first of these hearings, we have chosen to focus on four countries: The former Yugoslavia, Russia, Italy, and Germany. I would like now to introduce the witnesses.
