Nationalism: History and Theory

Paul Lawrence

Nationalism: History and Theory by Paul Lawrence

This book looks at how historians (and others, such as sociologists and political theorists) have explained the development, and enduring importance, of national identities from c.1850 to the present day. It compares and contrasts a wide range of different theories, and will be useful for anyone wanting to equip themselves...

Despite the entrenchment of the widely held theory--the so-called Documentary...
