Steven E. Aschheim, Stanley G. Payne, Mary Louise Roberts,
and David J. Sorkin, Series Editors

The Mosse Series promotes the vibrant international collaboration and community that historian George L. Mosse created during his lifetime by publishing major innovative works by outstanding scholars in European cultural and intellectual history. The Mosse Series publishes in three categories:

1. Books in the English language based on the biennial Mosse Lectures given by a noted scholar chosen by the Mosse Program Committee.

2. Outstanding original English-language manuscripts in European cultural and intellectual history, selected by a five-member Mosse Series Editorial Committee made up of faculty from the history departments at UW–Madison and the Hebrew University and a representative of the UW Press.

3. English translations of books in European cultural and intellectual history. The Mosse Series does not provide translation grants or subventions. The series Editorial Committee must approve the choice to include a translated book in the series and approve the quality of the translation.

The Myth of the Nation in the Twentieth Century
Emilio Gentile
Translated by Suzanne Dingee and Jennifer Pudney
This book is based on the George L. Mosse lectures that Jan Assmann gave at the Hebrew University in December of 2004. As Assmann states in his introduction, this is a work "about the relationship between God and gods" but not primarily about the history of Biblical religion.  Rather he sees it as "the history not of monotheism, but of an idea, which he calls "the Mosaic distinction," the idea of an exclusive and emphatic Truth (with a capital "T") which sets God apart from everything that is not God and must not be worshiped, and which sets religion apart from what comes to be shunned as superstition, paganism or heresy."
