Synopsis

"This book represents the most sophisticated historiographical approach to understanding nation-building. Patrice Dabrowski demonstrates tremendous erudition... making brilliant use of contemporary newspapers and journals, as well as archival material." -Larry Wolff, Boston College, author of Inventing Eastern Europe



Patrice M. Dabrowski investigates the nation-building activities of Poles during the decades preceding World War I, when the stateless Poles were minorities within the empires of Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary. Could Poles maintain a sense of national identity, or would they become Germans, Austrians, or Russians? Dabrowski demonstrates that Poles availed themselves of the ability to celebrate anniversaries of past deeds and personages to strengthen their nation from within, providing a ground for a national discourse capable of unifying Poles across political boundaries and social and cultural differences. Public commemorations such as the jubilee of the writer Jozef Kraszewski, the bicentennial of the Relief of Vienna, and the return to Poland of the remains of the poet Adam Mickiewicz are reconstructed here in vivid detail.

Patrice M. Dabrowski has taught at Harvard and Brown Universities and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University, where she is working on a multidisciplinary research project entitled "Borderlands: Ethnicity, Identity, and Violence in the Shatter-Zone of Empires since 1848."
