Nationalism

  • Independence Movements in Subnational Island Jurisdictionsby Eve Hepburn; Godfrey Baldacchino

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 160.00

    The dynamics for any moves for political independence in the 21st century are very different from those of the 20th. The aspirations of former colonies to independence are grinding to a halt; the rationale for selfdetermination is increasingly driven by strategic and pragmatic economic arguments, and not so much by nationalist appeals. Meanwhile,... more...

  • Multinational Federalism in Bosnia and Herzegovinaby Soeren Keil

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In 1995 none of the political parties representing the peoples of Bosnia preferred a federal option. Yet, Bosnia became a federal state, highly decentralised and with a complex institutional architecture. This solution was imposed on them by international actors as a result of peace negotiations following the Yugoslav wars. Political parties in post-war... more...

  • Nation-Building and Identity in the Post-Soviet Spaceby Rico Isaacs; Abel Polese

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Nation-building as a process is never complete and issues related to identity, nation, state and regime-building are recurrent in the post-Soviet region. This comparative, inter-disciplinary volume explores how nation-building tools emerged and evolved over the last twenty years. Featuring in-depth case studies from countries throughout the post-Soviet... more...

  • Trouble in the Tribeby Dov Waxman

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 29.95

    Trouble in the Tribe explores the increasingly contentious place of Israel in the American Jewish community.

More than ever before, American Jews are arguing about Israeli policies,... more...

  • Nationalism, Referendums and Democracyby Matt Qvortrup

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 160.00

    Democracy is above all about majority rule. But which majority should rule if a part of a country wants to secede and become independent? Should the majority of the whole country decide? Or only the majority in the part that seeks to become independent be allowed to vote? Referendums and democracy have often been perceived to be almost incompatible... more...

  • Hegemonies Comparedby Ting-Hong Wong

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 47.95

    This book explores the impact of cultural identity, the internal configurations of the educational field, and the struggles both inside and outside the educational systems of post-World War II Singapore and Hong Kong. By comparing the school politics of these two nations, Wong generates a theory that illuminates connections between state formation,... more...

  • Making Identity Countby Ted Hopf; Bentley B. Allan

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 25.99

    Making Identity Count presents a new constructivist method for the recovery of national identity, applies the method in nine country cases, and draws conclusions from the empirical evidence for hegemonic transitions and a variety of quantitative theories of identity. more...

  • Ethnicity, Democracy and Citizenship in Africaby Samantha Balaton-Chrimes

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 109.95

    As an ethnic minority the Nubians of Kenya are struggling for equal citizenship by asserting themselves as indigenous and autochthonous to Kibera, one of Nairobiā??s most notorious slums. Having settled there after being brought by the British colonial authorities from Sudan as soldiers, this appears a peculiar claim to make. It is a claim that illuminates... more...
