Nationalism is one of the most serious political problems in the world today. This volume is a collection of papers which address the topic of the ethics of nationalism. The contributors include some of the most eminent political philosophers and political scientists active today. The bulk of the literature on nationalism is in the social sciences and tends to focus on descriptive and prescriptive themes and issues of policy. This collection, however, focuses on the deeper moral issues that must be addressed if a policy prescription is to be well grounded.
Readership: Students and scholars of political philosophy, political science, and sociology,
particularly of nationalism.
Robert McKim, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies, and Jeff McMahan, Associate Professor of Philosophy, both at the University of Illinois at Urbana
