Published by Arun Arya
Overview
Drawing on examples from Eritrea, Yugoslavia and China to France and Germany, this book clarifies the way in which national boundaries and identities became central to the modern era, how they relate to the development of state power, and how a host of different social movements and government policies try to make use of them. At the same time, the author also challenges attempts to "debunk" nationalism that fail to grasp why it maintains its power and centrality in modern life.
