|Since the appearance of his seminal article 'Self Determination: The New Phase', Walker Connor has exerted a profound influence upon scholarship dealing with nationalism.|
In Ethnonationalism in the Contemporary World, world-renowned scholars employ various aspects of Connor's work to explicate the recent upsurge of nationalism on a global scale. In keeping with the growing awareness that the study of ethnonationalism requires an interdisciplinary approach, the contributors represent a number of academic disciplines, including anthropology, geography, history, linguistics, social psychology, sociology and world politics. The book discusses issues such as identity, ethnicity and nationalism, primordialism, social constructionism, ethnic conflict, separatism and federalism. It also features case studies on the Basque country, South Africa and Canada.
This volume, now available in paperback, should prove essential reading for anyone interested in problems associated with ethnicity and nationalism. At a time when many states are drastically reshaping their foreign and military policies in response to what is termed 'the terrorist threat', it offers a guide to understanding the ethnonational forces that underpin much of the terrorist activity.
