It builds upon the core theories of nationalism so as to explain their differing approaches, and develops a coherent understanding of the contemporary nation-state and the challenges it faces." "This book shows why and how nation-states are being challenged by the tensions between contending civic, ethnocultural and multicultural nationalist visions, and examines their varying responses. The analysis is illustrated throughout by case studies, which include examinations of nationalist politics in Singapore, Ghana, Spain and Australia. The tensions in Northern Ireland, Rwanda and Kosovo are also discussed." "This book brings an international focus to the study of nationalism. It is a valuable resource for all students of nationalism and politics."--BOOK JACKET."
