Nationalism: Past as Prologue



Series: Political Science and History

BISAC: POL031000

This volume provides a worldwide array of work on nationalism’s growth in various countries, usually by authors residing in them, or in the United States with ethnic ties to the nation being examined, often recent immigrants to the United States from them. Our roster of contributors comprises a small United Nations of insightful, well-written research and commentary from Poland, Tibet, the Uighur Nation, Indonesia, New Zealand, China, France, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, the United States, Germany, and Russia. The work also describes and analyzes the history of nationalism, by country, around the world. Additional material on the United States will be explored in a forthcoming book on Donald J. Trump. These may be used as a set.

“No-one writes, or thinks, with the same passion, fearlessness and accessibility as Bruce Johansen and Ad Akande, figures who have been speaking truth to power on global environmental and indigenous issues for over forty years. You’re going to scream at this work that nationalism is not all bad, but you’ll also learn much more than you ever expected and finish it determined to make changes and learn more. Enjoy!” -Professor Joy Porter, Leverhulme Major Research Fellow, Professor of Indigenous History, United Kingdom; Editor of the Cambridge University Press Series, Elements in Indigenous Environmental Research
