De versnippering van het rode vaderland
- Harry Van Velthoven
The disintegration of the red fatherland
In an extensive review-article following the publication in 2005 of Maarten Van Ginderachter’s The red fatherland: The forgotten history of the divergencies between the ethnic communities in Belgian socialism before WWI, Harry Van Velthoven depicts the different ethnic identifications made by socialists from Brussels, Wallonia and Flanders at a time when the movement had lost its international-revolutionary paradigm 'without a fatherland' and had incorporated itself completely into the Belgian framework. Moreover, the two most important socialist strongholds in Flanders, Antwerp and Ghent, developed a different chronology regarding their view on the Flemish Question as an emancipatory phenomenon.
