Review quote

-This is a very significant contribution to the literature on nationalism, which though now is rapidly growing, still has not done full justice to this important social phenomenon. The book is marked by very thorough, perceptive and relevant discussion of the previous treatments in social theory (within various disciplines), or the failures to treat it adequately. It is well written and a pleasure to read. I would expect it to have a very great appeal.- Ernest Gellner, Central European University, Prague -Valuable insights.- Journal of International Affairs -A series of useful discussions on the politics of nationalism, national identity, the relation between nation and state, and the impact of globalization on national identity. There is much that is commendable in this work [and] there is much to be learnt from her theoretical overview.- Democratization -Montserrat Guibernau's book will be immensely useful to teachers and students.- Patterns of Prejudice "This is a very significant contribution to the literature on nationalism, which though now is rapidly growing, still has not done full justice to this important social phenomenon.
