The author reviews main theories of nationalism and criticises their lack of elaboration on the role of 'Others' in nation formation. Drawing upon anthropological, sociological and social psychological perspectives, she develops a dynamic, relational perspective for the study of national theory.

'This book is certainly very well documented, carefully written and well organised and theoretically solid.' - Nations and Nationalism
