Overview

Peripheral cultures have been largely absent from the European canon of historiography. Seeking to redress the balance, Baár discusses the achievements of Joachim Lelewel (Polish); Simonas Daukantas (Lithuanian); Franti&sek Palacký (Czech); Mihály Horváth (Hungarian) and Mihail Kog&alniceanu (Romanian). Using previously untranslated documents, Baár reconstructs the scholars' shared intellectual background andtheir nationalistic aims, arguing that historians on the European periphery made worthwhile and fascinating contributions to historical writing.
