n argues for the continuing relevance of concepts such as nationalism and national identity in understanding the global patterns of mediated communication and identification
n bridges the gap between text-based analysis of national imagination and the more sociological concerns with the impact of media institutions and the broader political and economic context
n challenges the tacit ethnocentrism of existing debates, and opens up the study of nationalism and mass communication to the multiple trajectories of modernity around the globe
