Since its emergence along with Western nationalism, historical fiction has been one of the key forms for constructing national histories ̶ and it has not lost its importance even today. This volume highlights the cultural work historical fiction performed in Finland and Estonia ca. 1800 ̶ 2000 in the ongoing articulation of national identities. The book comprises of a theoretical preface, a comparative survey of Finnish and Estonian historical fiction in their socio-political contexts, case studies by literary scholars and historians and a summary chapter by Ann Rigney that places Finnish and Estonian historical fiction in a broader European perspective.
