Review quote

"This book strikes me as superior!"--Joseph Rothschild, Columbia University, author of Return To Diversity"Excellent anthology with good choice of topics. Excellent introduction to problems of modern nationalism."--Lohr E. Miller, Louisiana State University"Not the usual suspects--a very interesting collection of people many American scholars are unfamiliar with."--Lawrence Rosen, Princeton University"This is a collection of works that immensely illuminate a major socio-political phenomenon in many parts of the world today--nationalism."Ufot B. Inamete, Florida A&M University"This is the best available text on nationalism. It includes both the most important classic articles and the most stimulating recent contributions to the literature. The theoretical and empirical breadth of this compilation is exceptional."--Zoltan Barany, University of Texas"An excellent reader. The pieces are long enough to give substance to the argument."--Peter G. Wallace, Hartwick College"This book looks superb. An excellent collection."--Prof. Gary Buckley, Northern Arizona University--Flag Staff"The scholarship is superb, clear and crisp writing as well as a thorough, well documented, and intelligent discussion of a number of important issues related to one more important political dilemmas of the post colonial era."--Dr. Clinton G.Hewan, Northern Kentucky University--Highland Heightsshow more
