Nationalism Reader

Overview

The proclamation of a "New World Order," hailed at the end of the cold war, coincided with an eruption of nationalism. The withering of the bipolar balance of power has created a vacuum that has been filled by a new tide of ethnic conflict in the former Soviet Union, Bosnia, Somalia, and elsewhere. Despite general recognition of this resurgent phenomenon, there is neither widespread awareness nor expert consensus on the meaning and origins of nationalism.

Overview

The proclamation of a "New World Order," hailed at the end of the cold war, coincided with an eruption of nationalism. The withering of the bipolar balance of power has created a vacuum that has been filled by a new tide of ethnic conflict in the former Soviet Union, Bosnia, Somalia, and elsewhere. Despite general recognition of this resurgent phenomenon, there is neither widespread awareness nor expert consensus on the meaning and origins of nationalism. The Nationalism Reader depicts the historical evolution of nationalist thought in the words of leading political actors and thinkers. But this anthology is more than merely a useful reference book. By classifying the question of nationalism according to conflicting political perspectives, its introductory essay and organization show that liberalism, conservatism, and socialism each oscillates between a universalist (or a semi-universalist) conception of human rights and nationalism. In this respect, the selection of texts presented here sheds new theoretical light on the study of nationalism, as well as presenting major European, American, and Third World contributions to nationalist thought.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Adopting the position that nationalism is a "modern emotional effusion" aroused by the nation-state, this anthology traces the development of nationalism from the Enlightenment to the contemporary period. Topics include liberalism, conservatism, socialism, and internationalism; anti-colonialism and national liberation movements; American perspectives; and contemporary debate on the subject.
