About this book

This is a comparative study of nationalism and nation-building in Quebec, Catalonia and Scotland. All are historic nations within larger states. Nationalism is presented as a mechanism for dealing with the place of the territorial society in the new order. It is no longer concerned with the creation of a traditional nation state but with maximizing autonomy in a world where the nation state has lost its old powers and status.

About the authors

PROFESSOR MICHAEL KEATING is Professor of Scottish Politics at the University of Aberdeen and Professor in Regions at the European University Institute.
