A Contested Nation: History, Memory and Nationalism in Switzerland, 1761-1891
Cambridge University Press, 10 лип. 2003 р. - 269 стор.
This book examines the ways in which the Swiss defined their national identity in the long nineteenth century, in the face of a changing domestic and international background. It explores why the nation became a theme of public concern at particular historical junctures, how different social actors created and re-created Swiss nationhood, and why they embraced some definitions rather than others. The book's narrative begins in the 1760s, which witnessed the genesis of an early national movement, and ends in the 1890s when Switzerland had developed into a modern nation.

Сторінка 7 - They are highly relevant to that comparatively recent historical innovation, the 'nation', with its associated phenomena: nationalism, the nation-state, national symbols, histories and the rest. All these rest on exercises in social engineering which are often deliberate and always innovative, if only because historical novelty implies innovation.

Сторінка 13 - If politics is the ground upon which the category of the nation was first proposed, culture was the terrain where it was elaborated, and in this sense nationality is best conceived as a complex, uneven, and unpredictable process, forged from an interaction of cultural coalescence and specific political intervention, which cannot be reduced to static criteria of language, territory, ethnicity, or culture.
