"A provocative and persuasive work. It provides a fresh perspective on the imagining of nations in the ‘age of nationalism.’ Its themes of modernity, emergent nationalism, disease and sanitation, ethnic and civic, and of the role of the worker, peasant, or citizen within the class dynamic of the five riverscapes explored here situate this work within the current debate on nationalism, but also moves us beyond it."—Nations and Nationalism

"In this unique interdisciplinary work, Cusack uses five case studies to examine the construction and representation of national identity and belonging through the concept of the riverscape—a landscape with a river as the central element and organizing principle, geographically and culturally. Highly recommended."—Choice

"Through an analysis of individual painters’ influence and role in constructing nationalist discourse, Cusack also emphasizes the importance of individual agency."—Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History
