Nationalism is one of the most powerful forces in the modern world, yet its study has only recently gained popularity. This reader gives historical depth to the recent debates on nationalism and traces the development of thought on nationalism across a wide range of issues with reference to texts spanning from Ernest Renan's What is a Nation? in the 1880s to current views given in the 1990s. Issues covered include the definitions of the nation and of nationalism, theories of nationalism, the origins of nations, nationalism in Europe, the Third World and within the International System, and the future of nationalism more

Review quote

"The most comprehensive and up-to-date selection of writings on nationalism, including many of the seminal authors. An excellent collection!"--Frank Tachau, University of Illinois at Chicago"An amazing amount of information is included. This book contains excerpts from the works of some of the best scholars on nationalism. The authors have a diverse set of views, and...have selected the core parts of these writings for inclusion."--Dean McHeiry, Claremont College"This type of reader is badly needed for courses that take a serious thematic approach to world history."--J. Michael Allen, Brigham Young University"This is the first reader to be published on the subject of nationalism in many years. It is an invaluable collection of 49 expertly chosen extracts from the key authors in the field....[W]ill become the standard work in courses on nationalism. Its pithy extracts will introduce students to the breadth of the literature in the field..."--Choice"Excellent collection of articles with good historical coverage and a useful bibliography. I will certainly adopt it."--Oriol Pi-Sunyer, University of Massachusetts at Amherstshow more
