Containing Nationalism

The rise of the modern state extended direct rule, in which central authorities assumed ever‐greater responsibility for governing all the territory within the state's boundaries. Although direct rule made all individuals increasingly dependent on the centre for the provision of public goods, at the same time it threatened the power of local authorities. To legitimize the new order, central rulers embarked on state‐building nationalism that aimed to transform multinational states into national ones.
