Today's discourse on nationalism is engaged by dynamic theoretical models derived from studies in literary criticism, cultural anthropology, socioeconomics, and psychology. This is the first book of its kind to apply this new theoretical framework to the Arab Middle East. The essays include Beth Baron on the image of women in Egyptian nationalist iconography; Fred Halliday suggesting an instrumentalist approach to nationalism and applying it to the case of Yemen; Rashid Khalidi on the formative era of Palestinian nationalist identity; and Emmanuel Sivan's analysis of contemporary Islamicist interpretations of Arab nationalism.
