Theorizing Nationalism

Theorizing Nationalism – Ronald Beiner

Theorizing Nationalism directly addresses the normative dimensions of nationalism. Some of the themes it discusses are the following whether there is a 'right' to collective self-determination, the relationship between nationalism and modernity, whether nationalism and liberalism can be reconciled, whether there is a theoretically legitimate distinction between so-called civic and ethnic versions of nationalism, and the 'existential' attractiveness of nationalism.
