Description - The Social Origins of Nationalist Movements by John Coakley
This book advances beyond the basic premises of sociologists and historians and proposes a third variable: the changing political context within which the interaction between nationalist movements and social factors takes place. Specific cases are studied in France (Brittany), Italy (Sardinai), Switzerland (Jura), and UK (Northern Ireland and Scotland). The absence of nationalistic movements in Nordic countries and the reasons are also considered. The remaining contributions are comparative across Europe. Nationalism has re-emerged as "the" European issue of the early 1990s. This timely book is a guide to the future rather than a record of the past.
