This book looks at six men—Niccolò Tommaseo, Francesco Dall'Ongaro, Pacifico Valussi, Medo Puci ć, Ivan August Kaznačić, and Stipan Ivičević—who sought a pluralist alternative to nationalism and encouraged others in their homelands and beyond to do the same. These six were among the most prominent “fearful nationalists” living and working in Dalmatia, Trieste, and Venice. Examining them and their networks of interaction and collaboration reveals how mid-nineteenth-century elites tried to harmonize nationalism with pluralism decades before most of Europe had formed itself into nation-states and confronted the ensuing horrors of denationalizing programs, holocausts, and forced population transfers. Through the example of the “fearful nationalists,” this book argues that the general view of nationalism as being antagonistic to pluralism is as much fiction as fact. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
