Summary

"Economic and cultural globalization and the worldwide threat of terrorism have contributed to the resurgence of patriotic loyalty in many parts of the world, and made the issues it raises highly topical. This collection of new essays by philosophers and political theorists engages with a wide range of conceptual, moral, and political questions raised by the current revival of patriotism. It displays both similarities and differences between patriotism and nationalism, and considers the proposal of Habermas and others to disconnect the two." "Ideal as a supplementary reader for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in politics/political science - especially in political theory, contemporary political ideologies and nationalism - and in philosophy for courses on applied ethics and political philosophy."--BOOK JACKET.
