Constructing Class and Nationality in Alsace, 1830–1945
David Allen Harvey
"Innovative, well-written, and interesting."—French History
"One of the more stimulating recent accounts of collective identity construction in modern Europe."
"A good, well-written, and well-produced book.... Both the author and the press deserve praise for this volume."—American Historical Review
For more than a century, Alsace was the most contested region in western Europe, a battleground for ethnic and cultural identity in an era of rampant nationalism. Harvey's compelling analysis of working-class politics and nationality explains the successive attempts of French and German authorities to impose one national identity on the region and shows how workers responded by adopting a cultural policy that reflected their own political and class interests.
