Nationalism has unexpectedly become a leading local and international force since the end of the Cold War. Long predicted to give way to pan-national or economic organizations, nationalism exerts its tremendous force on all continents and in a wide variety of ways. "The Encyclopedia of Nationalism" captures the aims and scope of this force through a wide-ranging examination of concepts, figures, movements, and events. It is the only encyclopedic study of nationalism available today. It has an international editorial board. The articles begin with short glossaries and conclude with short bibliographies of titles essential for further reading.
