    One thought on “Budweisers Into Czechs and Germans: A Local History of Bohemian Politics, 1848-1948”

    1. This took me almost a year and a half to read, on and off as it was relegated to the bottom of the pile of books on my nightstand. It is a very dense academic text that could be really interesting to anyone interested in or with ties to Budweis (Ceske Budejovice) and a must for those interested in how Germans and Czechs lived together in (specifically, South) Bohemia from the 19th century onward, politically and socially.

    2. One does not need to be a Budweiser/Budějovičan to enjoy this book. It is a wonderful description of 19th century European construction of nationhood through the experience of a small Habsburg town. It is a macropolitical topic placed in a micropolitical context.King looks at the period from the 1848 revolution to the 1948 expulsion of Sudeten Germans. He examines how regional, religious or regal loyalties came to be replaced by national loyalties. He borrows heavily from two great scholars of [...]

    3. From the perspective of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, nationalism, national and ethnic identities seem perplexing. Nationalism and national identities seem commonsense and established as if we have always had them, but ethnic identities seem to be on a resurgence. Jeremy King's history is of the shifting balances between ethnic and national conceptions of identity in the southern Bohemian town of Česky Budějovice (for Czech speakers) and Budweis (for German speakers) – now known on [...]

    4. Very well researched and well written study of the terrible descent of Europe into nationalist passions where once there were none. The rise of nationalism in Europe, after centuries of cohabitation, let alone the concept of "nationalism," is a sad moment as it helped contribute to the disasters of the 20th century. This book walks us through the birth of the disease to its better conclusion with the Nazi regime and the eventual expelling of the Germans from Czechoslovakia and the Communist take [...]

    5. King follows what has become the lead school in Hapsburg history by looking at nationalism and its relation to the imperial Hapsburg state. although his book looks at the rising competition between Germans and Czechs in the city of Budweis for dominance in the area or Bohemia, despite the high levels of integration present in Budweis. Any one with an interest in Eastern Europe nationalism should consider looking at this book.
