Overview

In Ethnonationalism in the Contemporary World, world-renowned scholars employ various aspects of Connor's work to explicate the recent upsurge of nationalism on a global scale.

The book discusses issues such as identity, ethnicity and nationalism, primordialism, social constructionism, ethnic conflict, separatism and federalism. It also features case studies on the Basque country, South Africa and Canada.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'In the first book-length treatment of Walker Connor's ideas on nationalism, the editor Daniele Conversi persuasively argues that, to a lesser or greater extent, we are all Connorian in our approaches to the
study of nationalism. ... This stimulating collection of essays is indeed beneficial to both graduate students and researchers. Regardless whether they accept Connor's argument or not, they will certainly gain a much clearer understanding of the implications of various concepts and theories of nationalism.'

- Dejan Guzina, Political Studies Review

'Daniele Conversi is to be warmly congratulated on producing this edited volume; allowing the contributors too debate with each other, as it were, around the theme of the primordial roots of the very modern phenomena of nations an nationalism raises many questions, suggests some highly relevant answers, and points the way to fruitful new research on this vital dimensions of social and political life.'

- Stephen Barbour, University of East Anglia, UK
