Description

A selection of diverse readings on the subject of nationalism accompanied by scholarly introductions and headnotes, Becoming National takes the subject beyond its "classical" thinkers. While addressing such familiar figures as Herder, Fichte, and Mazzini, the editors have included new approaches to nationalism, including social and scientific studies and cultural studies. The volume tells both where scholars of nationalism have been, but also where they are going.show more

Back cover copy

Being national is the condition of our times, yet never before has the idea of the nation been under such scrutiny. With the collapse of the bi-polar world of the Cold War, there has also been a parallel rise in the subnational--the claims of local, regional and ethnic minorities--economic globalization, American cultural hegemony, international migration, and diasporization.show more
