Balkan as Metaphor. Between Globalization and Fragmentation
Established seller since Seller Inventory WM Language: English. Brand new Book. Pioneering essays on the idea of the Balkan as a body of knowledge and a cultural metaphor. Somewhere between a tragedy and a myth, a place and a condition, the term is perhaps best understood as a metaphor. It has been used and abused in academia by proponents of opposing political views.
Multiculturalism has appropriated it, as have postmodernism and postcommunism. It is used pejoratively to refer to excessive specialization and nostalgically to refer to Europe's lost people-its wild warriors and passionate geniuses.
This book explores the idea of the Balkan as metaphor and the meaning of Balkan identity in the context of contemporary culture. Focusing on Balkanism both as a body of knowledge and as the critical study of that discourse, this book does for the Balkans what Edward Said's Orientalism did for "the Orient. The book both lays the groundwork for a new field of study and serves as an act of resistance against the many forms of representation that break the Balkans into fragments such as NATO army bases and digital maps in order to wire them into the global market.

In Exile and Identity: Polish Women in the Soviet Union During World War II, Katherine Jolluck argues that gender and nationalism were inseparable issues that combined to allow the Polish women exiles sent deep into the USRR to find a way to give meaning to their existence and ultimately provided the means for their survival both mentally and physically. Although the Polish men and women reacted distinctively different based upon their perceptions, Jolluck points out that in the end they both acted in total unison for one purpose, Polish nationality.
Through ten essays, the authors implement an interpretative framework based on cultural history to address the attempts in Hapsburg Central European to create national histories using commemoration and trying to establish collective memories. The actors used various methods, sometimes promoting myths, presenting liberal interpretations, or just plain rewriting history based on desired story versus facts, all in an effort to create nationalism in a multi-ethnic, multi-religious environment.
The battle to create a common culture, an shared identity, was not only contested between the national level and the local level, but also between competing local groups or ethnicities.
follow link The problems Francis Joseph faced were a microcosm of the problems faced by most if not all of Europe, but are these problems with national identity and nation building specific to Europe? Finally, are differences in language, ethnicity and local customs the common obstruction factors for the state? Can a multi-ethnic nation with religious pluralism exist and survive for more than a brief time or beyond one influential leader?

Kieval analyzes the role of language and the experiences of Jews in both urban and rural settings in the two Czech provinces in an effort to demonstrate that the Jews efforts for emancipation and nationalism were, in effect, a microcosm of the struggles the fledging European nationalism movements, yet their experiences as individuals and collectively are indeed unique.

I must admit I had not considered the issue Central and East European relations from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century, especially in the triad model posited by Brubaker.
