Contested Borders: Territorialization, National Identity and "Imagined Geographies" in Albania - Nationalisms Across the Globe 15 (Paperback)Ilir Kalemaj (author)
- We can order this
On the basis of this case study, the author constructs a theoretical model that captures the dynamic of domestic versus international constraints on elite choices and analyses how this leads to the (re)construction of borders. The book explores the way in which competing elites manipulate national symbols to create the necessary environment for personal political gain, using both expansionist and contractionist versions of "virtual" borders that may or may not be congruent with internationally recognized borders.
