Description

Recent years have witnessed a swell of intense opposition to immigration in the developed world. In this empirical and theoretical study of nationalism, ethnicity, immigration, and internationalism, Gershon Shafir examines and compares the reception of large numbers of immigrants to four regions at opposite ends of Europe that are relatively overdeveloped but that at the same time possess distinct cultures and nationalist movements of their own: Catalonia and the Basque Provinces in Spain and the Republics of Latvia and Estonia on the Baltic.

Review quote

"Shafir has produced a sensitive, analytically astute comparative historical study of ethnic nationalism in two Spanish provinces and the Baltic regions of the former Soviet Union. I think this is a superb study." -- Michael Kimmel, State University of New York, Stony Brook
