Note "The New Nationalism and the First World War examines the rise of a new form of nationalism at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. At that time, a new conception of the nation emerged across the globe and as a result of various crises of imperialism and the rebuilding of nations that took place throughout the nineteenth century. Imperialism's ethnocentrism had defined the 'other' outside national boundaries. Now that dialectic turned inside as well, aiming to define a collective identity by seeking an 'enemy within.' Taking an interdisciplinary approach, this collection of essays examines the new conceptions of national identity present in nationalist movements across a variety of geopolitical contexts in pre-WWI years. It's dedicated to a transnational study of the features of the turn-of-the-century nationalism, its manifestations in social and political arenas and the arts, and its influence on the development of the global-scale conflict that was the First World War"-- Provided by publisher
