Date published: 
May 2012

Popularizing National Pasts is the first truly cross-national and comparative study of popular national histories, their representations, the meanings given to them and their political and societal uses, expanding outside the confines of Western Europe and the US. It draws a picture of popular histories which is European in the full sense of this term, making available to English readers the cutting edge of Eastern European scholarship on popular histories, nationalism, and culture.
