What makes people love & die for nations, as well as hate & kill in their name? The sense of nationality -- the personal & cultural feeling of belonging to a nation -- has not received much attention. Here, Anderson examines the creation & global spread of the ‘imagined communities’ of nationality. He explores the processes that created these communities: the territorialization of religious faiths, the decline of antique kingship, the interaction between capitalism & print, the development of vernacular languages-of-state, & changing conceptions of time. Shows how an imaginary nationalism born in the Americas was  adopted by popular movements in Europe, by the imperialist powers, & by the anti-imperialist resistances in Asia & Africa.
