Sample text

Amongst these factors of modernization, the most frequently cited are: (i) bureaucratization-or the modernization and rationalization of administration; (ii) political emancipation -including political revolutions and constitutionalism; and (iii) social emancipation - including vertical social mobility, intensification of market relations, horizontal social mobility and the „democratization‟ of the school system. All these aspects can be regarded, in a general sense, as more or less important constituents of increasing social communication.

In this understanding of the term, national movements and the expanding modern national identity seem to be interrelated with this economic and social component of modernization; and the economic background of „nationalism‟ in this broader sense (without being limited to „industrialization‟) is used as an interpretative tool in different modifications by authors like Lemberg (1964) and McCrone (1998: 92), amongst others. In this context, Llobera (1994: 220) distinguishes between capitalism (which he regards as irrelevant for nationalism) and modernization (which he regards as relevant).

Gellner's work at all times suggests that there is a link - which must concern both timing and location - between industrialization and the emergence of nationalism. This viewpoint is subject to fairly obvious refutation. To begin with, several European nationalist movements unquestionably predated the emergence of industrialization. This is true of the drive for Greek independence, as Gellner himself realized (1996: 629-30), but it is even more strikingly so for much nineteenth-century Balkan nationalism.
