Nations, Nationalism and the State

  • Michael Keating


Nationalism has been one of the most powerful political forces of the modern age. There is endless debate on its meaning and content and over the historical specificity of the term. Nationalism is a doctrine of self-determination; that much is agreed.

Further disagreement arises over whether nationalists, to qualify as such, must make a claim to their own state.
