Books By Author Professor Anthony D. Smith
Concept of Social Change, Paperback (October 2010)
Anthony Smith's important work on the concept of social change puts forward the paradigm of historical change as an alternative to the functionalist theory of evolutionary change. He shows that, in attempting to provide a theory of social change, functionalism reveals itself as a species of 'frozen' evolutionism.
Nationalism, Hardback (October 2010)
For the last two centuries, nationalism has been a central feature of society and politics. Few ideologies can match its power and resonance, and no other political movement and symbolic language has such worldwide appeal and resilience.
Ethno-symbolism and Nationalism, Paperback (February 2009)
Offers a statement of an ethno-symbolic approach to the study of nations and nationalism and at the same time, embodies a general statement of Anthony Smith's contribution to this approach and its application to the central issues of nations and nationalism.
