Product description

Benedict Anderson continues the historical and theoretical project begun in Imagined Communities, his classic work on nationalism, by providing a compelling exploration of fin-de-siecle politics and culture that spans the Caribbean, Imperial Europe and the South China Sea. He explores the impact of avant-garde European literature and politics on the great Filipino political novelist Jose Rizal and his contemporary, the pioneering folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes and, in doing so, depicts the dense intertwining of radical internationalism and anti-colonial nationalism, a process that gave birth to the politics of early anti-globalization.

Review quote

"Fiercely, movingly local, concentrated on a handful of remarkable men and fateful years, but also expansively global."--T. J. Clark, "London Review of Books""Anderson presents his case with the zeal of a researcher uncovering hidden history, referencing an impressive range of sources in multiple languages ... The volume provides fascinating insights into the global flow of anarchic and anti-colonial ideas."--"Publishers Weekly""A formidably erudite and beautifully illustrated study."--"Independent"
