About the Author

R. Chris Davis is an associate professor of history at Lone Star College-Kingwood.


An authoritative examination of nation building and minority politics during some of Europe's most difficult years. Davis brings together so many significant historical themes that the story of these few villages makes us rethink modern European history." - Roland Clark, author of Holy Legionary Youth: Fascist Activism in Interwar Romania

"This transnational case study makes larger, comprehensive arguments about Central and Eastern European nation building. It powerfully employs theory from history, anthropology, political science, and sociology to disentangle the conundrum of identity." - Calin Catoi, University of Bucharest

"A remarkable combination of microhistorical richness and interpretive acumen, this is a beautifully written study of one of the 'little peoples lost to history,' caught between more powerful states' self-interested attempts to dictate their identity. It prises open the deceptively simple question 'who do you think you are?' to reveal startling contests over the meaning of identity in politics, language, and lived reality." - Jane Caplan, University of Oxford

"Introduces fundamental questions of identity and belonging, asking us to consider the importance of language, religion, territory-and, no less, tradition and bias-as both building blocks and obstacles to ethnic community. A major contribution to debate on the meaning of collective identity and its deployment for political ends. Eloquent, original, sophisticated, and persuasive." - Dennis Deletant, Georgetown University
