The break-up of Britain : crisis and neo-nationalism by Tom Nairn( Book )

40 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Tom Nairn's The Break-up of Britain reviews the arguments of his classic study and expands his thesis into the new millennium. He confirms his contention that civic nationalism - but not ethno-nationalism - would play an increasing role in the breakdown of the United Kingdom. This, he says, has now assumed an even more rapid pace than when the book was first published. The cumulative strains of Thatcherism and Blairism have their effect. Reprinted now, after the almost-successful referendum to make Scotland a country of its own, the edition has additional resonances. 'The Break-up of Britain', Nairn writes in his introduction to this edition 'began its life in a still imposing, if narrowing river; by the time the 1981 paperback edition had appeared, the river had begun to fell the approaching rapids - which have accelerated for over twenty years, and attained a crazy pace even in the few weeks between beginning and finishing thi new edition. The thunder of a waterfall no one conceived of in 1977 is in everyone's ears, as Tony Blair sends off his ships and troops to assist America's assault on the Middle East... In the altered world lying beyond these falls, it is surely unlikely the United Kingdom will survive in anyhing like its historical form'."--Page 4 de la couverture

Faces of nationalism : Janus revisited by Tom Nairn( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues that nation-building movements from 1750 to 1990 have saved the world from imperial barbarism and that the chaos feared by so many observers is neither endless nor one-sidedly destructive. He argues that the ethnic definition of national is giving way to the civic, the 'natural' to the designed, by discussing Ireland, Palestine, Bosnia, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Cambodia, Rwanda, South Africa and Scotland
