- This study seeks to explain the impact of historical narratives on the inclusiveness and pluralism of citizenship models. Drawing on comparative historical analysis of two post-imperial core countries, Turkey and Austria, it explores how narrative forms operate to support or constrain citizenship models. -- This study explores the role played by collective perceptions of the past in constructing, maintaining, and challenging views of citizenship and national identity while taking divergent visions of the past seriously. It seeks to understand how much of the disparity in the way citizenship questions are approached can be explained by the differences in visions of the past. Drawing on comparative historical analysis of two post-imperial core countries, Turkey and Austria, this volume explores how differences in perspectives on the past inform citizenship debates. It looks at the ways in which different forms of historical narratives foster certain citizenship models and create resistance against others. By doing this, it develops a conceptual framework applicable beyond the two cases when analyzing the history-identity nexus at the collective level.
- 'In her bold and erudite comparative study, Ugur Cinar boldly identifies the remote but powerful impact exerted not by the content but by the type of narrative nations and peoples embrace.' - Ian S. Lustick, Bess W. Heyman Professor, University of Pennsylvania, USA 'Meral Ugur Cinar's insightful book is a central contribution to contemporary discussions of citizenship, identity, and inclusion. In this book, she traces the way in which the interpretation and institutionalization of the past shapes present national identity and the inclusionary potential of citizenship. The original research on Austria and Turkey will be essential to specialists, but the theoretical development will be more broadly influential. In particular, her development of the history-identity nexus provides a systematic way to evaluate the way in which longstanding narratives of history, culture, and identity take shape and constrain contemporary politics. Her book will be required reading for political scientists interested in Turkish and Austrian politics as well as for scholars of citizenship and nationalism.' - Ines Valdez, Assistant Professor, The Ohio State University, USA.
