Mapping the Nation (Mappings Series) by Benedict Anderson, John Breuilly, Gopal Balakrishnan, Lord

By Benedict Anderson, John Breuilly, Gopal Balakrishnan, Lord Acton, Otto Bauer

In approximately twenty years on the grounds that Samuel P. Huntington proposed his influential and troubling ‘clash of civilizations’ thesis, nationalism has purely persisted to puzzle and frustrate commentators, coverage analysts and political theorists. No consensus exists relating its identification, genesis or destiny. Are we reverting to the petty nationalisms of the 19th century or evolving right into a globalized, supranational international? Has the countryside outlived its usefulness and exhausted its innovative and emancipatory role?

Opening with robust statements via Lord Acton and Otto Bauer – the vintage liberal and socialist positions, respectively – Mapping the country offers a wealth of notion in this factor: the controversy among Ernest Gellner and Miroslav Hroch; Gopal Balakrishnan’s critique of Benedict Anderson’s seminal Imagined Communities; Partha Chatterjee at the obstacles of the Enlightenment method of nationhood; and contributions from Michael Mann, Eric Hobsbawm, Tom Nairn, and Jürgen Habermas.
