Overview

Globalization and European integration are sometimes seen as the enemies of nationalism, imposing a single economic, cultural, and political order; but, by challenging the 'nation-state' as the sole basis for identity and sovereignty, they open the way for a variety of claims by stateless nations. This book considers these issues from a theoretical perspective, analyzing case studies of stateless nationalism in western, eastern, and central Europe, the former Soviet Union, even Quebec. It presents a variety of experiences to show that while there are no easy answers to conflicting national claims, they can be managed through democratic political processes.
