"This well-organized, thoughtful, six-chapter volume offers a critical survey of the major theories that connect nationalism to ethnicity, capitalism, and modernity. This book challenges the reader to think about how regions and nations will cultivate modern citizens in the era of the Internet and other rapidly developing technologies. Highly recommended." - Choice
