The SAGE Handbook of Nations and Nationalism gives readers a critical survey of the latest theories and debates and provides a glimpse of the issues that will shape their future. Its three sections guide the reader through the theoretical approaches to this field of study, its major themes – from modernity to memory, migration and genocide – and the diversity of nationalisms found around the globe.

This book will provide a much-needed resource for scholars in international relations, political science, social theory, and sociology.
