Nationalism has become the most prevalent source of political conflict and violence in the world. Scholarship has provided scant guidance about the prospects of containing the dark side of nationalism - its widely publicized excesses of violence, such as ethnic cleansing and genocide. Departing from the usual practice of considering only a few examples of nationalism drawn from a limited geographical and historical canvas, this groundbreaking book is
based on fundamental theoretical ideas about the formation and solidarity of groups.

Progress in Human Geography It is an excellent book for two reasons. First, it provides a plausible new theory of nationalism. Second, it invites engagement with an argument that is taken far beyond theoretical niceties.


Stefan Wolff, University of Bath, The Global Review of Ethnopolitics Hechter's latest book impressed me - in its clarity, logic, and comprehensiveness of argument ... Michael Hechter has written a book that without a doubt makes a significant contribution not only to the theoretical debate on the concept of nationalism, but equally to the various theoretical and practical discourses addressing the ways it can be best managed and prevented from escalating into violence. As such it should find its way into many libraries and become an
integrated part of any course on nationalism.


M. K. Flynn, Monash University, The Global Review of Ethnopolitics Hechter has written more for the advanced scholar of nationalism studies and cognate fields. He is already an established name in the field ... Hechter's argument has considerable merits.


M. K. Flynn, Monash University, The Global Review of Ethnopolitics Chapter 2 'Causes of Nationalism', is concise, managing to provide explanations for group formation, group solidarity, the modernity of nations and national identification ... the striking feature is that the author is able to usefully clarify in only fourteen pages what so many others take entire books to do.


British Journal of Sociology This is a valuable and provocative contribution to the general theory of nationalism that deserves a wide readership ... clearly written ... Hechter's arguments are bold and stimulating.


John Torpey, Contemporary Sociology Containing Nationalism is a trenchant discussion of a problem that shows little sign of abating. Even more, however, it is a thoughtful attempt by a veteran observer to offer a theoretical analysis with very practical implications. This book will be indispensable for academics and policymakers alike.
