About this book

This volume offers a new cultural and political history of the idea of the nation. Situating the history of international politics and the idea of the nation in the history of psychology, it reveals the popularity and political importance of a transnational discourse of the psychology of nations that had taken shape in the previous half-century.

Reviews

'[Sluga] engages the swirl of activists, organizations, and government bodies that drew on psychological concepts in their struggle to reconcile national self-determination with the tenets of liberalism. Her account is especially noteworthy for demonstrating the biological and hereditarian cast of arguments in liberal understandings of self-determination.' - Eric J. Engstrom, American Historical Review

'Glenda Sluga's book marks an important contribution to the transnational history of the idea of the nation...a thoroughly engaging book.' - Daniel Laqua, Reviews in History
