Product description

In recent years, nations, nationalism, and the nation-state have enjoyed a resurgence of scholarly interest. The focus on the twentieth century and in particular the post-colonial and post-socialist era, however, has neglected the crucial developmental phase of modern nationalism, when basic patterns were created that were to exert long-term influence on the political culture of nations in and outside Europe. This book examines how gender and nation legitimize and limit the access of individuals and groups to national movements and the resources of nation-state. From problems of inclusion, exclusion and difference, national wars and military systems to national symbols, rituals and myths, contributors present a diverse array of critical perspectives, methodological approaches, and case-studies that are intellectually provocative and will help to guide future research as well as orient it toward international comparison.This book raises new questions about nation and gender and provides an assessment of the state of research in different countries for all those interested in cultural and social history, politics, anthropology and gender studies.

Review quote

'This is the kind of book to which it is impossible to do justice in a short review ... all the essays emody a fresh approach to the increasingly unavoidable subject of national identity.'History'Many of the chapters are conspicuously successful in achieving new insights into well-worked topics.'English Historical Review 'With this book the contributors have consolidated the effort of scholars in women's, gender and feminist history to highlight gender as an important analytical category in studies of the nation and nationalism.'Nations and Nationalism
