Description - Nations and Nationalism by Philip Spencer
Presents a selection of core texts and challenging peripheral reading which has reconfigured our understanding of nationalism Although nationalism has become a key area of political theory over recent years there are very few Readers which bring together the best and most representative of these works in one volume. This Reader includes both the core texts which are required for any course on nationalism, and a selection of more interesting, less mainstream pieces - for example from post-communism and feminism. It also discusses debates which have taken place over issues such as citizenship, migration and asylum with the aim of engaging the reader with some of the contemporary debates which have reconfigured our understanding of nationalism. The overall aim of the Reader is to allow students to draw together and relate theories and debates within and across a range of disciplines, illuminating themes and issues of central importance in both historical and contemporary contexts, and showing how nationalism has evolved and has impacted upon and interacted with other political and social forms and forces.
