Summary
"In the name of their nationalist identities, people parade, protest, vote, take up arms, and even martyr themselves. Traditional paradigms relegate this phenomenon to the murky recesses of irrationality. Challenging core assumptions central to most political studies, this book contends that there is indeed an underlying logic to this kind of collective action. Rather than search for this logic in the realm of material goods we find it in the tactical quest for emotional aspirations. Beyond the study of nationalism, this work asks us to reconsider our assumptions about rationality and our very human emotions."--BOOK JACKET
