[A] most impressive achievement by an extraordinarily intelligent, courageous, and--that goes without saying--'well-read' mind. The scope of this work is enormous: it provides no less than a comprehensive, historically grounded theory of 'modern peoplehood, ' which is Lie's felicitous umbrella term for everything that goes under the names 'race, ' 'ethnicity, ' and nationality.' Christian Joppke, American Journal of Sociology Lie's objective is to treat a series of large topics that he sees as related but that are usually treated separately: the social construction of identities, the origins and nature of modern nationalism, the explanation of genocide, and racism. These multiple themes are for him aspects of something he calls 'modern peoplehood.' His mode of demonstration is to review all the alternative explanations for each phenomenon, and to show why each successively is inadequate. His own theses are controversial but he makes a strong case for them. This book should renew debate. Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University and author of The Decline of American Power: The U.S. in a Chaotic World
