More about the content
The concept of "loyalty" allows us to take a new and fresh look at political cultures of the past and present as well as at political change. Together with concepts of trust, solidarity, patriotism and identity, it is one of the newer approaches to emotions and political culture. At the same time the concept captures better the complexity of social relations and their vertical and horizontal manifestations. This volume examines loyalties in the history of the East and East Central European region in the 19th and 20th centuries. The comparative study looks at the Russian and Habsburg empires as well as the period following their disintegration after the First World War. The authors look closely at national, religious, political and military loyalties.
