Bell (history, Johns Hopkins Univ.; Lawyers and Citizens: The Making of a Political Elite in Old Regime France) delineates the history of nationalism in France, tracing its origins to the 17th century. He shows how in 18th-century France, political and intellectual leaders made perfect national unity a priority, allowing the construction of the nation to take precedence over other political tasks. The goal was to provide all French people with the same language, laws, customs, and values. Bell argues that while the French leaders hoped that patriotism and national sentiment would replace religion as the binding force, it was actually religion that was a major (but not exclusive) factor in helping the French see the world around them. This period of history was the beginning of the first large-scale nationalist program. Bell also shows how the relationship between nationalism and religion contributes to the French national identity debate today. Bell's comprehensive and well-documented book is written in an accessible style and offers access to a web site with more detailed bibliography and appendixes. Recommended for French and European history collections. Mary Salony, West Virginia Northern Community Coll., Wheeling
