NOTE: John Breuilly's book Nationalism and the State is a classic discussion of the politics of nationalism in a comparative and historical perspective.

A nationalist argument is a political doctrine built upon three basic assertions: There exists a nation with an explicit and peculiar character.

During the annual conference of ASEN (Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism) we asked John Breuilly, the chair of Nationalism and Ethnicity Studies at the London School of Economics, to talk with us about the study of nationalism, where it has been and where it is going. Why don't you begin by telling us a little bit about your background in terms of how you got into Nationalism Studies, the relationship between your interest in German history, your book (Nationalism and the State), and Nationalism Studies at LSE. JB: I did a PhD on German labor history in the nineteenth Century.

Combining historical perspective and theoretical analysis, this book provides an overview of modern nationalism. The text explores the recent developments in eastern and central Europe that have given the subject of nationalism a new significance. The author also addresses many of the debates that have arisen in current historiography and re-evaluates his own position. The book considers nationalism as a form of politics which arises in opposition to the modern state. In this light it is revealed as an appropriate way of advancing the interests of elites, social groups and other governments against a modern state. The author asserts that rather than emerging from a cultural sense of national identity, nationalism creates a sense of identity. He supports his argument with a broad-ranging analysis of a variety of examples - national opposition in early modern Europe; the unification movement in Germany, Italy and Poland; separatism under the Hapsburg and Ottoman empires; fascism in Germany, Italy and Romania; post-war anti-colonialism and the nationalist resurgence following the breakdown of Soviet power.
