About this book

Quebec, Catalonia and Scotland are three stateless nations looking for a future in a world beyond the nation state. This book argues that national identity may be a vital source of social cohesion in a world dominated by markets and global forces, but that this does not necessarily entail sovereign statehood in the traditional sense. These three nations are harbingers of a new post-sovereigntist nationhood.

MICHAEL KEATING is Professor of Scottish Politics at the University of Aberdeen and Professor in Regional Studies, European University Institute, Florence.

Reviews

'This is a path-breaking book which focuses on the re-emergence of nationalism in three stateless nations... In Nations against the State, Keating offers a well argued and stimulating analysis of nationalism in Quebec, Catalonia and Scotland. This book will be essential reading for scholars of nationalism and students in the fields of sociology and politics.' - Dr Monsterrat Guibernau, The Open University
