Concentrating primarily on the Balkans, historian Catherwood attempts to explain the general phenomena of religious nationalism. He surveys incidents in history when nationalism and religious motivations have mixed together in virulent and violent forms, often pausing to explore theoretical considerations for political science and history. This revised edition, in response to the September 11th attacks on the United States, incorporates discussion of Osama Bin Laden and his Islamist ideology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
