Nationalism is one of the most serious political problems in the world today. This volume is a collection of papers which address the topic of the ethics of nationalism. The contributors include some of the most eminent political philosophers and political scientists active today. The bulk of the literature on nationalism is in the social sciences and tends to focus on descriptive and prescriptive themes and issues of policy. This collection, however, focuses on the deeper moral issues that must be addressed if a policy prescription is to be well grounded.

MEDIA REVIEWS

..".a welcome and important addition to [the] literature....The contribution to this book are uniformly firstrate.....Excellent."--American Political Science Review


"The essays are usually gems of sustained philosophical analysis, and there are facts and arresting bon mots essential to the arguments."--Choice


"At a time when talk of nationalism conjures up images of bloodshed and despair in Bosnia or Chechnya, it is good to be reminded that there is a non-violent and non-xenophobic nationalism that can stand a scrupulous moral investigation. These essays do not answer all the questions that beset citizens who wish to reconcile their duties to humanity with their love of their own country--but they certainly advance the debate."--Alan Ryan, New College, Oxford


"A first-rate collection. The contributions are of uniformly high quality; they represent a broad range of contemporary philosophical perspectives; and they form an unusually coherent whole....As stimulating a survey of the subject as any philosophical reader could reasonably hope to find between the covers of a single volume."--Charles R. Beitz, Bowdoin College


"These are important essays on important questions: they place issues that are of central practical importance in a theoretical context that illuminates them. Even when I do not agree with them, I find them helpful in framing the issues."--K. Anthony Appiah, Harvard University
