Looking for the National Dream. Austro-Hungarian Migrants in the Americas in Comparative Perspectives
Between the end of the 19th century and 1914, more than 3.5 million people emigrated from the Habsburg Monarchy to the Americas. Many of them took their national or regional identifications as "Germans", "Poles", "Italians", "Dalmatians" etc. with them, other – such as the Slovaks – experienced a veritable nation-building process in North America. America, thus, became also a place where Habsburg nationality conflicts were played out. Furthermore, especially the Hungarian government tried to extend its nation-building project across the Atlantic.
