This book serves as a much needed corrective to dominant, conventional approaches to the study of nationalism and ethnic conflict that is at once political, economic, cultural, and, above all, social. Providing a class-based perspective on nationalism and ethnonational conflict, the book makes a major contribution to the discussion and debate on the nature, dynamics, and contradictions of this all-pervasive phenomenon.
