Studies in Modernity and National Identity

Edited by Sibel Bozdogan and Resat Kasaba

Studies in Modernity and National Identity examine the relationships among modernity, the nation-state, and nationalism as these have evolved in the 19th and 20th centuries. Titles in this interdisciplinary and transregional series also illuminate how the nation-state is being undermined by the forces of globalization, international migration, electronic information flow, as well as resurgent ethnic and religious affiliations. These books highlight historical parallels and continuities while documenting the social, cultural and spatial expressions through which modern national identities have been constructed, contested, and reinvented.
