In the third and final volume of the Nationalism in National Territorial Units series from Nomos, editor Jahn (political science and contemporary history, U. of Mannheim, Germany) has collected essays and case studies from scholars, educators and researchers on nationalism in late and post-communist Europe, especially in regards to the Russian Federation, Kosovo and the CIS. Contributors analyze ethnic and nationalistic movements in such regions as South Ossetia, Tatarstan, Mordvinia and Chechenia, revealing to students and fellow scholars how these "nations without a state" are able to express ideologies and a mass consciousness. The editor concludes this volume with an essay of his own that uses Switzerland as a model for a "self-willed" state-nation.
