The Ethics of Nationalism blends a philosophical discussion of the ethical merits and limits of nationalism with a detailed understanding of nationalist aspirations and a variety of national conflict zones. The author discusses the controversial and contemporary issues of rights of secession, the policies of the state in privileging a particular national group, the kinds of accommodations of minority national, and multi cultural identity groups that are justifiable and appropriate. These insights are then applied to two central nationalist aspirations: nation-building and national self-determination projects. The discussion of nation-building projects invloves a theory of the appropriate policies and principles that the state should follow in giving preferences to a particular national group. The discussion of national self-determination projets analyses the kind of prodedual right to secession that should be institutionalized in domestic constitutions or international law, and the psooibilities for accomodation rival caims to national recognition in the changing international order.

Moore's book has the potential to be a modern classic in the study of nationalism. Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies This book is extremely well written, which makes Moore's line of argumentation easy to follow. This combined with a strongly argued case makes this book compulsory reading for researchers focusing on nationalism as well as issues of multiculturalism. Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies
