Description: London Etc, Sage Publications. 1995, First Edition. (ISBN: 0803975252) Soft Cover. pp200 includes index. Highlighting in certain parts of book - mainly in introduction and section on postmodernism. Otherwise in excellent condition. '.presents a challenge to orthodox conceptions of nationalism.While traditional theorising has tended to focus on extreme expressions of nationalism, the author turns his attention to the evryday, less visible forms that are deeply ingrained in contemporay consciousness. This form of nationalism, which is neither exotic or remote, he describes as "banal nationalism". ''''is critical of orthodox theories in sociology, politics and social psychology for ignoring this core feature of national identity. He ssuggests that nationalism is constantly flagged in the media through routine symbols and habits of language. Small familiar turns of phrase, like the flag which hangs untouched outside a public building, are reminders that often operate mindlessly, beyond the level of conscious awareness.with nationalism continuing to be a major ideological force in the contemporary world, it is all the more important to recognise those signs of nationalism which are so familiar they are easily overlooked.'.
