Nations & Nationalism

Click here for a list of books available for review|

Nationalism is the central issue of the modern world. Since the demise of the Soviet Union there has been a proliferation of nationalist and ethnic conflicts. The consequent explosion of interest in ethnicity and nationalism has created an urgent need for systematic study in this field. Nations and Nationalism aims to satisfy this need.

As a scholarly, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal, it is designed to respond to the rapid growth of research in the study of nationalism and nationalist movements throughout the world. Nations and Nationalism is the only journal in the English-speaking world specifically devoted to the study of nationalism.

The journal is published quarterly by Blackwells and includes original studies, theoretical, empirical, historical, and philosophical, of a range of issues in the field, together with review articles and book reviews. Special issues highlight subjects and areas of current interest. The journal covers all areas of the world.

Editorial policy

The editors welcome original research articles from scholars in political science and theory, international relations, sociology, history, geography, anthropology, law, linguistics, cultural studies, area studies, economics, social policy, social psychology, art history and archaeology. Nations and Nationalism operates a rigorous refereeing policy.
