[[Kymlicka]] extends and resonds to criticisms of his [Multicultural Citizenship] (1995) which defens a version of liberal nationalism, so this is a collection of essays on different topics though all related to his earlier thesis. Although there's interesting stuff, this volume can probably only be appreciated by readers of the earlier work who have been following the discussion.Read this second, in other words.
