The year 1989 was marked by an explosion of nationalist movements. These took place most massively not in the Western world where the principle of nationality is widely accepted but in the Soviet world which had banned it from the substance of the social, economic and cultural life of its people in the name of universalism and internationalism. It was thus that a new age on nationalism began, which in turn has given to a resurgence of scholarship in this field adding to and modifying earlier understandings. The set will offer a carefully selected anthology of the most important theoretical and empirical literature in the field. It will include translations of little known but major texts on nationality and nationalism from German and French sources and will include articles devoted to individual cases of nationality/nationalism in Europe, Asia,and the rest of the world. Scholars, students and practitioners in international relations, political science, sociology, law, geography, and history will find this collection a vital resource to a highly topical area.
