An incisive and illuminating exploration of the ways in which nationalism and national identity have been analyzed, theorized and written about. Written by experts in the field, this collection will doubtless make a valuable intervention into nationalism studies. * Paul Lawrence, Asa Briggs Professor of History, The Open University, UK *
This is the best book I have read on nationalism in a long time. Comprehensive, lucid and inventive, the book gathers the leading scholars in the field of nationalism studies to offer a much-needed shake-up of how we view and understand the writing of nationalism. * Rico Isaacs, Reader in Politics, Oxford Brookes University, UK *
