Theorizing Nationalism provides a comprehensive and accessible review of the main sociological approaches to understanding nations, nationalism and national identities. Well illustrated with examples, it gives a detailed insight into the contributions of key social theorists, and shows how the analysis of nationalism is linked to contemporary studies of gender, 'race' and ethnicity. It examines recent developments in the field, including liberal nationalism, theories of globalization and studies of the formation of national identities.
