Ideas of the Modern World: Nationalism by Richard Tames
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A comprehensive account of the rise of nationalism and nation states. Nationalism has been a major force in world history since the time of the French Revolution in 1789. It is a powerful force which taps into people's feelings of pride, fear and hatred and has been behind the formation of nation states, the collapse of colonialism and the creation of new countries. This book traces the story of nationalism and nation states from their rise in Europe and America in the late eighteenth century to the continuing conflicts that they cause today. It also looks at the relationship between nationalism and other significant twentieth century ideas such as fascism and communism.
