Kohn H.-Nationalism,its meaning and History

Written by one of the distinguished historians of our time, this text offers a concise history of nationalism. Nationalism has been one of the determining forces in modern history.

It originated in Western Europe in the eighteenth century; during the nineteenth century it spread all over Europe; in the twentieth century it has become a worldwide movement. Only a study of the historical growth of nationalism and a comparative study of its different forms can make us understand the impact of nationalism today.
