Review
"The scope of Smith's paintings is breathtaking ... half I is in a few respects the main unique a part of the booklet; to my wisdom there is not any similar survey." magazine of yankee Ethnic History

"Unquestionably a major contribution to the literature on nationalism ... this can be a considerate, insightful research into the roots and strengths of ethnonational identification. ... i like to recommend it unhesitatingly to all scholars of nationalism." Walker Connor, Trinity university, Hartford

A well-researched, perceptive learn of a tremendous topic. It discusses comprehensively ethnic groups in pre-modern eras and ethnic and international locations in glossy ones. as well as being in accordance with stable proof, it really is methodologically sound and conceptually provocative ... no political scientist, historian or sociologist can do with out it." A. Jacob M. Landau, The Hebrew college of Jerusalem

"Smith's intensity of studying is awe-inspiring, and this paintings merits a popular position at any place nationalism is discussed." Michael Levin, Ethnic and Racial Studies
