Title: 19th-Century Nationalism

19th-Century Nationalism
Essential Questions
  1. In what ways did nationalism provide a basis,
    different from monarchy (with its dynastic
    principle), for defining and organizing a
    territorial state?
  2. Why did nationalist movements arise in Europe in
    the early 19th century?
  3. Why were professors, writers, and other
    middle-class professionals so central in leading
    the way in the nationalist movements in Europe in
    the 19th century?
  4. In what ways did Napoleon and the Napoleonic Wars
    give birth to the earliest nationalist movements
    in Europe?
  5. Why did the success of German, Italian, and other
    movements require a combination of idealistic
    nationalist leaders and practical, often ruthless
    political leaders?
  6. Is nationalism more likely to generate
    authoritarian and aggressive states, or is it
    more likely to foster democratic states ready to
    resist oppression or domination by others?
