Comments for NightHawk http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk Roger Darlington's personal blog Sun, 22 May 2022 12:51:38 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=6.0 Comment on Day four in the Balkans by Calvin Allen http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27883&cpage=1#comment-330926 Sun, 22 May 2022 12:51:38 +0000 http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27883#comment-330926 Roger, if you want to relive this part of your trip, may I recommend Kapka Kassabova’s ‘To The Lake’: a wonderful work of observation, poetry and history. Also lookout for her ‘Borderlands’, too!

Comment on Is Ukraine an artificial state, as President Putin suggests, or a true state, as President Zelensky argues? What constitutes a nation state anyway? by Roger Darlington http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27781&cpage=1#comment-299984 Sun, 03 Apr 2022 17:26:33 +0000 http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27781#comment-299984 You are right, Ronnie. But the alternative to nations is empires. On the whole, I prefer nations, but I think we have to consider carefully how nations are constructed and deconstructed.

Comment on Is Ukraine an artificial state, as President Putin suggests, or a true state, as President Zelensky argues? What constitutes a nation state anyway? by Ronnie Landau http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27781&cpage=1#comment-299541 Sun, 27 Mar 2022 11:04:10 +0000 http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27781#comment-299541 All ‘nations’ are imagined and synthetic. Nation-states and nationalism has, throughout history, especially the modern period, proved both a blessing and a curse … mostly the latter.

Comment on When did Ukraine come under Russian control and who was responsible for this? by Dirk F Havlak http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27744&cpage=1#comment-299127 Sun, 20 Mar 2022 19:52:52 +0000 http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=27744#comment-299127 Hi Roger,
I see the “Borderland” book was originally published in 1997, and reissued in 2015. Was it updated, or just reprinted? Still probably valid regardless, because it’s history, right?
