Book Description

19 Aug 1993
This edition of Elie Kedourie′s Nationalism brings back into print one of the classic texts of our times. With great elegance and lucidity, the author traces the philosophical foundations of the nationalist doctrine, the conditions which gave rise to it, and the political consequences of its spread in Europe and elsewhere over the past two centuries. As Isaiah Berlin wrote of the original edition, "Kedourie′s account of these ideas and their effect is exemplary: clear, learned and just." In a new introduction the author reflects upon the origins of the book and the relationship of his argument to contemporary nationalist conflicts.

4.0 out of 5 stars flawed ideological history of nationalism 4 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Elie Kedourie obviously has an axe to grind about nationalism - as a Jew he was exiled from Iraq and settled in London. In this book he traces the ideological development of nationalism from Kant, Herder and Fichte, claiming that nationalism was invented when Fichte gave his Addresses to the German Nation in the early nineteenth century. Kedourie unfortunately places far too much emphasis on Kant - who was much more concerned with the individual than the community - and not enough on Hegel. Kedourie also neglects such important writers as Rousseau and Mill and does not attempt to trace just how Fichte et al. influenced specific nationalists. Nevertheless this is a well-written polemic against nationalism from someone who dealt with it first hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a good companion to The Chatham House Version & and Other Middle Eastern Studies. 12 July 2013
By A. Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are going to study political science, and/or politics of the Middle East region, read this book first before reading Kedourie's other work The Chatham House Version (I went in reverse, reading the latter first. Nationalism will give you the background to understand his points in the latter.) I will say that it is not for the novice looking for a quick primer to make a few talking points, as it deals with some more abstract concepts to political science topics; he does cover Kant, and other philosophies that have led to self-determination-nationalism (and, how such does lead to autocratic regimes under fascist/socialist/communist ideals . If you are acquainted or knowledgeable in such subjects, it is old hat to understand.) A good read (I got it yesterday, and I am half way through it.)
