Reviews

A sharp, short history of nationalism.... A frank, well-written look at the dangers we face. We ignore them at our peril.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Urgent and pithy... Readers seeking clear and relevant definitions of political concepts will appreciate this brisk yet thorough, frank, and bracing look at the ancient origins of the nation state versus the late-eighteenth-century coinage of the term 'nationalism' and its alignment with exclusion and prejudice.--Booklist
A hopeful book for all who believe that America's ideals are stronger than our demagogues.--Michael Bloomberg
