Description - Ethnonational Identities by Steve Fenton
The prominence of ethnonational identities and movements is of increasing interest and concern. But the nature and importance of these identities remain ill understood. This title breaks significant ground by exploring the complex dimensions of ethnonational identity claims, their political mobilisation, and a wide variety of comparative contexts in which they are found. Including case studies from the Quebecois to the Maori and from Kashmiri nationalism to inter-ethnic competition in the Caribbean, it should be of interest to all those with an interest or involvement in the fields of ethnicity, nationalism and identity politics.
