Central European Nationalisms

Finding Common Solutions in the Work of Andrea Pipino

23 December 2019

On Andrea Pipino’s book Nationalisms. Illiberal democracies, authoritarian temptations and the identity of Central and Eastern Europe.

In mid-September of this year, the European Parliament adopted a motion for a resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe, at the request of MEPs mainly from the countries of the former Eastern Bloc. The document aroused considerable controversy and revealed how difficult it is to build a common memory in countries with different sensitivities and different historical experiences. If more books such as Andrea Pipino’s Nationalisms were read by citizens of the European Union, it would be easier for us to understand each other and look for common solutions.

Andrea Pipino, Nazionalismi, Editrice Bibliografica, 2019

A small volume booklet Nationalisms. Illiberal democracies, Authoritarian Temptations and the identity of Central and Eastern Europe written by Italian journalist Andrea Pipino appeared in June 2019 by the publishing house Editrice Bibliografica.

The book consists of seven short chapters – the first is an original introduction on Central European distinctiveness whereas the next six are interviews with representatives of individual countries: Ferenc Laczó from Hungary, Jacek Dehnel from Poland, Martin Pollack from Austria, Lucian Boia from Romania, Slavenka Drakulić from Croatia, and Alexander Verkhovsky from Russia.
