The Remote Borderland explores the significance of the contested region of Transylvania to the creation of Hungarian national identity. Author LaŒszloŒ Ku¬rti illustrates the process by which European intellectuals, politicians, and artists locate their nation's territory, embody it with meaning, and reassert its importance at various historical junctures. The book's discussion of the contested and negotiated nature of nationality in its East Central European setting reveals cultural assumptions profoundly mortgaged to twentieth-century notions of home, nation, state, and people. The Remote Borderland shows that it is not only important to recognize that nations are imagined, but to note how and where they are imagined in order to truly understand the transformation of European societies during the twentieth century.About the Author:
László Kürti is professor of Political Science at the University of Miskolc, Hungary. He is the coeditor, with Juliet Langman, of Beyond Borders: Remaking Cultural Identities in the New East and Central Europe.
