Summary

"In this revised edition, Benedict Anderson updates and elaborates on the core question: What makes people live and die for nations, as well as hate and kill in their name?" "Anderson examines the creation and global spread of the 'imagined communities' of nationality, and explores the processes that created these communities: the territorialization of religious faiths, the decline of antique kingship, the interaction between capitalism and print, the development of secular languages-of-state, and changing conceptions of time and space. He shows how an originary nationalism born in the Americas was adopted by popular movements in Europe, by imperialist powers, and by the anti-imperialist resistances in Asia and Africa."--BOOK JACKET.
