9788483230886: La construcción de las nacionalidades: Etnicidad, religión y nacionalismo (Spanish Edition)

The Construction of Nationhood is a thorough re-analysis of both nationalism and nations. In particular it challenges the current 'modernist' orthodoxies of such writers as Eric Hobsbawm, Benedict Anderson and Ernest Gellner, and it offers a systematic critique of Hobsbawm's best-selling Nations and Nationalism since 1780. In opposition to a historiography which limits nations and nationalism to the eighteenth century and after, as an aspect of 'modernisation', Professor Hastings argues for a medieval origin to both, dependent upon biblical religion and the development of vernacular literatures. While theorists of nationhood have paid mostly scant attention to England, the development of the nation-state is seen here as central to the subject, but the analysis is carried forward to embrace many other examples, including Ireland, the South Slavs and modern Africa, before concluding with an overview of the impact of religion, contrasting Islam with Christianity, while evaluating the ability of each to support supra-national political communities.

Book Description:

This interdisciplinary book makes an original contribution to arguments about the meaning and origin of nationalism, ethnicity and nationhood, and challenges the widely-accepted 'modernist' theories of Eric Hobsbawm, Benedict Anderson and others. Its argument incorporates careful analysis of English, Irish, South Slav and African examples, and suggests finally an important contrast between Christianity and Islam.

Review:

'... an important book that is a significant corrective to the dominant reading of nationalism'. History

' I heartily recommend this stimulating and provocative book to all those interested in the history of the nation' The Historical Journal

' ... some thought-provoking material ... this study ... offers food for thought in its insistence on nationalism's much earlier origins'. Labour History Review

Book Description AKAL, 2017. Book Condition: Nuevo. Este es un profundo reanálisis tanto del nacionalismo como de la nación. Pone en cuestión la actual ortodoxia modernista de escritores tales como Eric Hobsbawm, Benedict Anderson y Ernest Gellner, y ofrece una crítica sistemática de la conocida obra de Hobsbawm Naciones y nacionalismo desde 1780. Al contrario que otros libros que establecen el surgimiento de las naciones y del nacionalismo del siglo XVIII en adelante como un aspecto de la modernización, el profesor Hastings se muestra partidario del origen medieval de ambos, basado en la religión bíblica y en el desarrollo de la escritura en lengua vernácula. Mientras que los teóricos de la nacionalidad han prestado en general escasa atención a Inglaterra, el desrrollo de dicha nación-Estado se considera aquí un aparte esencial del tema, pero el análisis prosigue para estudiar muchos otros ejemplos, incluidos Irlanda, los esclavos del Sur y el Africa moderna, para concluir con una visión general sobre el impacto de la religión y el contraste entre el cristianismo y el islam.
