First edition. xi+281 pages with index. Laminated boards. Fine. No dustjacket issued. Nationalism has recently been the focus of considerable interest, but relatively little is known about nation-building and competing identities in Spain and Portugal. In examining the roots of Iberian nationalism, and the conflicts and tensions which have come to the fore in the twentieth century, this timely collection offers a broad interdisciplinary base and socio-historical context through which to understand the region's nationalist challenges. Topics include: * how nationalism is constructed and used as a tool by political groups; * how language is used as a nationalist emblem; and * how cultural representations of nationalism manifest themselves at both a popular level and at the level of elites. This book will provide a welcome addition to Iberian studies and invaluable insights for students and specialists alike. This item has been price-checked for good value in 2011.
