An examination of the ceaseless controversies surrounding ideas of nation and nationalism, showing that they are very far from dead in twenty-first century Europe. Beginning by defining these terms and setting out theories and concepts clearly and concisely, this book analyses the impact of nationalism since the Second World War, covering themes including:

* the relationship of nationalism to the Cold War

* the re-emergence of demands by stateless nations

* European integration and globalisation

* immigration since the 1970s

* the effects of nationalism on the former Soviet Union and Eastern block.


'Malcom Anderson has written a book of eminent good sense, drawing upon a lifetime of scholarship on the politics of Western Europe. That he wears such scholarship lightly makes this book accessible and readable, but no-one should doubt the force and implications of his argument.' - Scottish Affairs
