Overview

The relatively recent emergence of the state as the exclusive focus of political authority and sovereignty has encouraged a collapse of the distinction between nations and states and an obliteration of the moral and political rights of nations. Much contemporary liberalism emphasizes the rights of individuals and the limits of the powers of states, which raises a number of fundamental questions about what defines a nation and about the rights which national groups may legitimately claim. This book presents essays which address these questions by some of the world's leading social and political thinkers.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The Conference of University Rectors in Ireland works for cooperation between what are conventionally called the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland. When its working group proposed the volume, it was decide to bring internationally recognized scholars from off the island in order to avoid even the illusion of taking sides in a conflict that new seems to be slouching toward resolution. They explore such topics as the social and religious origins of nations, the right to national self-determination, minority nationalism within liberal democracies, and the ethical status of nationality.
