About this book

Why are regional nationalisms threatening the old nations? This book explores examples such as why Scotland might become independent, why Wales wants more autonomy, and why Catalonia emphasizes its distinctive language and institutions but does not want separation from Spain. Stateless Nations explores the historical roots of modern nationalisms.

Reviews

'As others see us'...a remarkable survey of stateless nations. A tour de force, showing sound craft and good judgement; sure-footed and comprehensive. - Professor David McCrone, Institute of Governance, School of Social and Political Science

University of Edinburgh, UK

'As the project of European integration faces one of its most acute crises in decades, Julius Friend's timely book reminds us that the cohesion of the very nation-states comprising the EU should not be taken for granted. Why do stateless nations persist in an allegedly post-national Europe and what impact will regionalism and separatism have on the continent's future? Friend brings a nuanced historical perspective to bear on these questions in this elegantly written and deeply erudite comparative study.' - Professor Aviel Roshwald, Georgetown University
