The Nationalities of Europe: The Growth of National Ideologies
July 24, 2018
In The Nationalities of Europe, first published in 1945, Munro Chadwick investigates the issue of nationality and opens a discussion about the growth of national ideologies in Europe, with an exclusive concern for language and linguistics. At the very beginning of the book, he clearly states that “he is not concerned either to defend nationalism or to condemn it” and he presents his main purpose as “calling attention to the need for more knowledge, not only of national movements –their characteristics and causes, and the ideologies associated with them– but also, and more especially, for more knowledge of the nationalities themselves” (p. vii).
