This volume makes a unique contribution to the literature on nations and nationalism by examining why nations remain a vibrant and strong social cohesive despite the threat of globalization. Regardless of predictions forecasting the demise of the nation-state in the global era, the nation persists as an important source of identity, community, and collective memory for most of the world’s population. More than simply a corrective to the many scholarly but premature epitaphs for the nation-state, this book explains the continued health of nations in the face of looming threats. The contr

The phrase "ethnic group" is now part of daily news and political discourse. More ominously, the term "ethnic cleansing" has entered the language in the aftermath of the collapse of Yugoslavia. Despite phrases such as this, we often think of ethnic difference as benign-whether exemplified in food, dress, or music. But is it? Are the kinds of sentiments that we call ethnic-or national-as potentially destructive as those we call racist? Are marches and drumbeats heartwarming traditional rituals or the signs of bitter division? Many books on ethnicity and racism have concentrated on a single coun

Urban ethnic groups frequently are confronted by residential segregation, discrimination, xenophobia, and conflict. However, ethnic diversity has also enriched the urban scene with a variety of languages, religions, businesses, and cultural activities. In this volume, distinguished scholars present analyses of ethnic population change in twelve urban areas: Chicago, Los Angeles, Sydney/Melbourne, Paris, London, Amsterdam, the Ruhr conurbation, Vienna, Milan, Madrid, Johannesburg/Durban, and Singapore. "EthniCity" reveals fundamental commonalities in ethnic community dynamics as well as signifi

This important new collection of interdisciplinary essays sets out to chart the cultural construction of "ethnicity" as embodied in American ethnic literature. Looking at a diverse set of texts, the contributors place the subject in broad historical and dynamic contexts, focusing on the larger systems within which ethnic distinctions emerge and obtain recognition. It provides a new critical framework for understanding not only ethnic literature, but also the underlying psychological, historical, social, and cultural forces
