Understanding national identity by David McCrone( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in a world in which being a 'citizen' of a state and being a 'national' are by no means the same. Amidst much scholarly debate about 'nations' and 'nationalism', comparatively little has been written explicitly on 'national identity' and a great deal less is solidly evidence-based. This book focuses on national identity in England and Scotland. Using data collected over twenty years it asks: does national identity really matter to people? How does 'national identity' differ from 'nationality' and having a passport? Are there particular people and places which have ambiguous or contested national identities? What happens if someone makes a claim to a national identity? On what basis do others accept or reject the claim? Does national identity have much internal substance, or is it simply about defending group boundaries? How does national identity relate to politics and constitutional change?"--
National identity, nationalism and constitutional change( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing upon unparalleled research by sociologists, political scientists, social psychologists and anthropologists this book focuses on one of the most discussed issues of our day: national identity. It examines how people in England and Scotland 'do' national identity in different situations. It asks: has devolution had much impact on how they see themselves in national terms and how does identity relate to issues of political nationalism? Do these changes challenge the British state by undermining what it means to be British? National identity is not simply a matter for individual construction and choice, but is claimed in, and affected by, varying contexts and institutions. The media, for example, help to frame and define what are 'national' issues. Likewise, national identity is carried by education systems which shape what it means to be 'national'. The world of business too makes use of national identities in processes of rationalization and amalgamation
