“This is a learned and sophisticated meditation on the ways in which comparable practices of national history writing emerged in three locations tied together by global capitalism and the formation of a worldwide system of nation-states. Christopher L. Hill demonstrates why we must reject national exceptionalisms even as he unveils the particularities of each of the nations he studies with rare insight and linguistic skill. This is an important study that should be read far beyond the parochial boundaries of area studies formations.”—Takashi Fujitani, author of Splendid Monarchy: Power and Pageantry in Modern Japan

"This is a remarkably accomplished, broad-ranging, and provocative study that makes important claims about three of the key societies of modernity. It will energize an important theoretical and empirical debate about fundamental questions in a--still further--globalizing world."--Richard Terdiman, author of Present Past: Modernity and the Memory Crisis
