History has been a crucial element in underpinning national
identities across the globe for a very long time. Each construction
of national identity is incorporating a sense of a long, proud and
preferably unbroken history. This book brings together experts on
national history writing from all five continents to discuss the
role of history in the making of national identities in a
transnational and comparative way. The institutionalization and
professionalisation of history writing is analysed in the context
of history's increasing nationalization in the course of the
nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century. The narrative
construction of nation and its interrelationship with other
'master' narratives, such as class, religion, race and gender are
discussed, and many of the contributions also reveal to what extent
spatial definitions of the nation were linked to both
local/regional as well as transnational history writing.
