About the Authors
  • Has the emergence of nationalism made warfare more brutal? Does strong nationalist identification increase efficiency in fighting? Is nationalism the cause or the consequence of the breakdown of imperialism? What is the role of victories and defeats in the formation of national identities? The relationship between nationalism and warfare is complex, and it changes depending on which historical period and geographical context is in question. In 'Nationalism and War', some of the world's leading social scientists and historians explore the nature of the connection between the two. Through empirical studies from a broad range of countries, they explore the impact that imperial legacies, education, welfare regimes, bureaucracy, revolutions, popular ideologies, geopolitical change, and state breakdowns have had in the transformation of war and nationalism.

    • Contains contributions from some of the world's leading social scientists and historians
    • Embeds theoretical and conceptual issues in specific historical and contemporary examples of the relation between nationalism and war
    • A nuanced account, which specifies the different mechanisms at work in different historical and geographical contexts

    "This is a vastly important subject, and this book amply fulfils all expectations in assembling a star cast with divergent perspectives to explore its many dimensions. The editors’ introduction offers a state of the art overview to the field. This is an essential text for students of war and of nationalism." - John Hutchinson, Reader in Nationalism, Department of Government, LSE
