In this provocative essay, finished just before the author's death, Gellner explores the subject with which he was most associated throughout his life: that of nationalism. He demonstrates how the histories of nationalism and industrialization are crucially linked and, drawing together the history of philosophy, economics and political thought, he contrasts nationalism with religious fundamentalism in a debate that remains of continuing importance to modern politics and international relations.
