The Impact of Nationalism

  • A. P. Thornton


BECAUSE it declares itself in action, nationalism is more easily recognised than defined. Indeed it contains static elements which are easy to identify, elements such as a common descent, traditions, customs, religion, language, and territory. But no one can predict correctly where or when or how these elements are going to coalesce, or what will happen if they do. Nor are all of these elements necessary to nationalism: and even when all these elements are present the one essential, the driving impulse, may still be lacking.
