Jewish conditions, theories of nationalism: Cartographical notes

Liliana Riga, John A. Hall

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Thinkers with Jewish backgrounds contributed powerfully to our understanding of nationalism. We examine the different Jewish conditions in East Central Europe and Russia at the end of the nineteenth and at the start of the twentieth century so as to map the theories of nationalism that resulted. Four such theories are identified,each illustrated with reference to particular thinkers.
