Bill Kissane and Nick Sitter

This chapter maps out the role played by national identity in modern European constitutions. It does this by comparing its impact on constitutions across Gellner’s four time zones of European nationalism, and shows how the impact of nationalism has increased over time. Time and space are the fundamental variables behind Gellner’s time zones, but European integration and globalization have now created  a fifth zone, in  which nationalist constitutionalism affects all parts of Europe equally.
