Recent years have seen great interest in questions of national identity in modern Europe, yet there have been few comparative studies of the mid-nineteeth-century, which was a crucial period for national identity formation and state-building.Different Paths to the Nation analyzes the changing perceptions of nation, region and state in areas on the border between Germany, Austria and Italy. On the basis of original case-studies, it challenges still prevailing master-narratives of national history in modern Germany, Italy and the Habsburg Monarchy. By analysing the ambivalence and flexibility of regional and national identities in the period, the contributions demonstrate how Europeans in the mid-nineteenth century were faced with a range of different paths towards nationhood.
