`Stephen Reicher and Nick Hopkins write with elegance and clarity, drawing the reader into their argument, without losing any of its complexity and nuance. This book deserves to make a major impact in studies of nationalism. It ought to become a classic…. I'm quite bowled over - it's really brilliant' - David McCrone, Edinburgh University.
