Notes on contributors. Index. The essays in this volume examine the swiftly changing connotations of the concept of nation in the global world of today. They analyse the contradictory as well as complementary relationship that exists between two major political and intellectual categories the national and the global and raise a host of questions that are pertinent to individual and collective life in contemporary society. The areas of concern identified range from the problems of marginalized communities within nation to the new neo colonial imperatives of the politics of globalisation. The title Nation in Imagination signals the discursive grounds for debate and points to the role of the shaping influence of narratives in the shifting contours of nation. 274 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 67756
