Abstract | Full Text

The issue of the various interconnections between the discourses on national self and leftist ideologies has long been an important part of the theoretical preoccupations regarding Central and Eastern Europe. The argument of Anton Allahar's paper is developed in terms of class consciousness and false consciousness and explores their role in the creation of ethnic entrepreneurs and, implicitly, of ethno-nationalism. However, what is missing is the coupling of the analysis of the formation of subjectivities - ethnic and national - with the analysis of the context they are built in.
