Ethnicity and nationalism are pervasive features of the contemporary world, but how far is ethnicity a result of cultural differences, and how much is it in fact dependent on the practical use of, and belief in, such differences? In this book, Thomas Hylland Eriksen demonstrates that far from being an immutable property of groups, ethnicity is a dynamic and shifting aspect of social relationships. Drawing on a wide range of classic and recent studies in anthropology and sociology, Eriksen examines the relationship between ethnicity, class, gender and nationhood and more in a lucid and comprehensive manner.

A core text for all students of social anthropology and related subjects, Ethnicity and Nationalism has been a leading introduction to the field since its original publication in 1993. This new edition - expanded and thoroughly revised - is indispensable to anyone seriously interested in understanding ethnic phenomena. New topics covered include cultural property rights, the role of genetics in the public understanding of identification, commercialisation of identity, and the significance of the internet.

Review:

"This is a delightful book. The volume is well structured and written in clear and accessible language; it will not be at all surprising if it becomes a major teaching aid and textbook  in the field. My students found Eriksen's book to be stimulating and thought provoking. it generates lively debates on key aspects of the study of nationalism, and it must, therefore, find its way to the desks and shelves of anyone interested in this topic." --Ephraim Nimni, School of Political Science, University of New South Wales "An excellent book when it first came out, Ethnicity and Nationalism is an even richer, more subtle book in this new edition." -- Nations and Nationalism 
 
"As an introduction to the study of ethnicity, [this book will do excellently." --Ethnologia Scandinavica
