Summary
"This work is the first title of its kind in either English or French. It analyses the cultures and politics of identity in modern Brittany, highlighting the region's special status within France. Brittany: 1750-1950 analyses the paradoxes of the region's political culture, concentrating on episodes in which the majority of the Breton people have acted. While Brittany has never produced a substantial Breton nationalist movement, important assertions of separate identity and culture have created a diffuse and original interpretation of nationhood in this region."--BOOK JACKET
