What is the effect of globalisation on nationalism, and conversely how does the persistence of the nation affect globalizing forces?
Does globalisation spell the end of the nation-state and if so, what is it that accounts for the persistence of nationalism in the modern world?
Nationalism and globalisation are two central phenomena of the modern world, that have both shaped and been shaped by each other, yet few connections have been made systematically between the two.
This book brings together leading international scholars to examine the relationship between nationalism and globalisation. With a range of case studies from Europe, the US and Asia, the authors focus on the interaction between globalisation, national identity, national sovereignty, state-formation and the economy and consider the ways in which nationalism has shaped globalising processes. Divided into three parts:
It will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, sociology, history, economics and international relations.
"Even a fleeting glance at the impressive corpus of work that has been produced over the last couple of decades on globalization and nationalism reminds me of a snappy passage from Haruki Murakami's absorbing Norwegian Wood: ''Not that we were incompatible: we just had nothing to talk about'! The collection of essays brought together by Daphne Halikiopoulou and Sofia Vasilopoulou is a welcome exception to this arid rule. Steering clear from cut and dried categorizations and worn-out cliches, the book problematizes both globalization and nationalism as well as the chequered relationship between the two, and offers fresh perspectives on some of the most important issues that continue to shape the world we live in. Authoritative yet accessible, Nationalism and Globalization will have no difficulty in finding its way into the reading lists of courses in a variety of social science disciplines." - Umut Ozkirimli, Visiting Chair in Contemporary Turkey Studies, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Lund University
