"Deconstructing the Nation" analyses the connection between racism and the development of the nation-state in modern France. Maxim Silverman looks at the the nature of citizenship rights in modern French society, contributing to wider European debates on citizenship. By challenging the myths of the modern French nation, this book opens up the debate on questions of immigration, racism, the nation and citizenship in France to non-French speaking readers.
Until quite recently, these questions have largely been ignored by researchers in Britain and the USA. However, European integration has made looking beyond the national frontier essential. Silverman's analyzes the period from the end of the 1960's to the present, placing contemporary developments in historical context. He examines the construction of immigration since the second half of the nineteenth century, and surveys the political, economic and social developments since 1945. Silverman considers the major debates on nationality including the "headscarf" affair of 1989.
Silverman is a leading expert on issues of immigration, racism and the nation of France. "Deconstructing the Nation" is of interest to students and scholars of cultural studies and discourse analysis.
