Nation and Identity provides a concise and comprehensive account of the place of national identity in modern life. Ross Poole argues that the nation became a fundamental organising principle of social, political and moral life during the period of early modernity and that is has provided the organising principle of much liberal, republican and democratic thought.
Ross Poole offers us a new and urgently needed analysis of the concept of identity, arguing that we are now in a position to envisage the end of nationalism. We see that the impact of issues like multiculturalism, republicanism, and indigenous rights have made it very difficult to see how the possibility of a postnational cosmopolitanism could not degenerate into a nihilistic moral universe.
Nation and Identity will be a fascinating read for all those interested in issues of national identity, both politically and philosophically.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book offers a clear and engaging argument....."
-"Ethics, July 2001
"Poole's study constitutes a major contribution; the capter detailing the emergence of nationalism and the bibliographical essay are especially outstanding. Upper-division undergraduates and above."
-"Choice
""Nation and Identity is well organized, well written, carefully argued and at the cutting edge of the relevant literature...It has a striking and important set of conceptualizations and arguments about nation, national identity and nationalism, and some probing conjectures about 'the future of nationalism' in an increasingly globalized world."
-Kai Nielsen, University of Concordia
"A beautifully written, timely and thoughtful book, Poole argues his case persuasively and elegantly using his philosophical, political and historical sources judiciously."
-David Archard, University of St. Andrews
