Lajos Kossuth and The Future of Nations (1852)

This is the final scheduled post in H-nationalism's series 'Brexit, The Future of Europe and Nationalism'. We would like to thank the contributors for the incisiveness and high quality of their posts. The different approaches taken provided insights into a complex and controversial topic. This is not the end of Brexit or its consequences. Over the coming months we will publish updates and promote further discussion.

Author's response: I find myself in the unusual position of admiring aspects of Alexey Miller's negative review of my book on nationalism in modern Europe. His criticisms are, I have to admit, formulated with verve and are rendered fluidly in Borislav Chernev's translation from the Russian original. I respect Prof. Miller's work and therefore his perspective on my book. Yet in light of the vehemence of some of his comments, I feel the need to respond at least briefly.
Routledge has recently published my book in which I continue to explore the connections between Asian (Inner and East Asian) and Russian history. In my new book, I trace the emergance of the Far Eastern Republic - a post-imperial state on the territory of the former Russian Empire which had the Russians, Koreans, Buryat-Mongols, Ukrainians, Tatars, and Jews as its constituent nations - in 1920-1921 and its unification with Soviet Russia a year later.
Author’s response: I will take advantage of this “reply” box to respond to Professor De Weerdt’s many criticisms of my book, and also to contextualize some of my claims for non-China specialists. We can break down Professor De Weerdt’s critique into two fundamental issues: 1) did I provide enough evidence to demonstrate that a form of “nationalism” emerged in eleventh-century China? 2) did I correctly identify the causal mechanisms to explain the emergence of this Song Dynasty form of nationalism?
