Nations and Nationalism: Second Edition (New Perspectives on the Past) (Paperback)
"The second edition of this canonical text comes with a compelling introduction by John Breuilly which revists Gellner's theory in the light of contemporary debates on nationalism."
―Umut zk r ml , Istanbul Bilgi University
First published in 1983, Nations and Nationalism remains one of the most influential explanations of the emergence of nationalism ever written. This updated edition of Ernest Gellner's now-canonical work includes a new introductory essay from John Breuilly, tracing the way the field has evolved over the past two decades, and a bibliography of important work on nationalism since 1983.
