Details

What makes people love and die for nations, as well as hate and kill in their name? Anderson explores the linguistic, religious and ethnic affinities and other factors that contribute to the development of a national consciousness among groups of people.

We'll discuss the concepts of national identity and nationalism and various independence movements of the 19th to 21st centuries.

Benedict Anderson's short book is considered a foundational text in the study of Nationalism.
