Review quote

Her work offers a refreshingly sophisticated and comprehensive view of Indian nationalism that has been missing from sociologists of the past who 'focused more on legitimate issues such as inequality and less on the content and meaning of ethnicity' ... Nagel's research is to be praised for being remarkably interdisciplinary, incorporating current anthropology, sociology, and political science research. Her work is very accessible and suitable for anyone interested in the processes of ethno-nationalism and identity construction ... an excellent starting point for examining ethnic renewal among other indigenous groups throughout the world. * Jeff Corntassel, Nations and Nationalism, 5:4 1999 *show more
