Contents: Part 1 God's firstborn - England: reflection of the national consciousness in discourse and sentiment; the new aristocracy, the new monarchy, and the protestant reformation; the English Bible, the bloody regiment of Queen Mary, and the burning matter of dignity; England as God's peculiar people, and the token of his love; the sound of their voices; the changing position of the crown and religion in the national consciousness; a land of experimental knowledge. Part 2 The three identities of France: the development of pre-National French identity; France - a church, and the faith of the "Fleur de Lys"; heresy and its child; the king and his state; the social bases of the nationalization of French identity and the character of the nascent national consciousness; turns of the social wheel - the plight of the French aristocracy; the perilous escape - redefinition and reorganization of the "Noblesse"; the birth of the French nation; nation, the supreme being; competition with England and "Ressentiment"; a note on non-elite nationalism. Part 3 The scythian Rome/Russia: "Perestroika" in the eighteenth century; the cisis of the nobility; the west and "ressentiment"; the laying of the foundations; transvaluation of values - the crystallization of the matrix of Russian nationalism; the two-headed eagle. Part 4 The final solution of infinite longing - Germany: the setting; the conception and miscarriage of nationalism in the 16th century; the early evolution of the concept of the state; the insouciance of German nobility prior to the 19th century; "Bildungsburgertum" - the dangerous class; the birth of the spirit - the preparation of the mould for the German national consciousness; "Aufklarung"; pietism; romanticism; the materialization of the spirit; the impact of the French Revolution; the birth of German nationalism; the finishing touch - "Ressentiment"; the twin blossoms of the blue flower. Part 5 In pursuit of the ideal nation - the unfolding of nationality in America: America as a New England; the separation; a union begun by necessity; the tug-of-war - the persisting threat of secession and the development of national unity; inconsistencies and tensions; the trial and completion of American nationality.
Responsibility: Liah Greenfeld.
