The tension between nationalism and internationalism has been a major feature of world politics since the end of the Cold War. Based on a Nobel symposium, this collection brings together an international selection of acclaimed authors from a wide variety of academic disciplines. The book combines focused case-studies and more theoretically based material to examine critically the post-Cold War political landscape. Subjects covered include:

* changing interpretation of the nation state and nationalism
* the growing prominence of transnational organisations
* technological changes in information, communication and transport
* multiculturalism and citizenship
*ethnicity and religious identity in African, Indian, Bosnian and Polish nationalism
* the growing global significance of Islam.
