Book

Nationalizing the Past: Historians as Nation Builders in Modern Europe

L.: Palgrave Macmillan, 2010.
Under the general editorship: S. Berger, C. Lorenz.

Historians traditionally claim to be myth-breakers, but national history since the 19th century shows quite a record of myth-making. This volume compares how national historians in Europe handled the opposing pulls of fact and fiction and shows which narrative strategies have contributed to the success of national histories.
