In diesem Buch wird der Whole-Nation Bias, eine für die ländervergleichende Forschung hochrelevante Verzerrungsproblematik, erstmals einer empirischen Untersuchung sowie einer umfangreichen theoretischen Exploration unterzogen. Im theoretischen Teil des Buches erfolgt eine konzeptionelle Ausdifferenzierung des Whole-Nation Bias. Außerdem skizziert Felipe Böttcher das Zustandekommen, mögliche Erscheinungsformen sowie die Konsequenzen dieser Verzerrungsproblematik. Die empirische Erfassung hat schließlich zum Ziel, die Magnitude in unterschiedlichen staatlichen Kontexten quantifiziert darzustellen. In einer umfangreichen Datenerhebung wurden dazu 6.150 Indikatorwerte für 410 Regionen in 18 föderalen Staaten berechnet und so die Demokratiequalität sowohl auf der subnationalen als auch auf der nationalen Ebene dieser Länder erfasst.

Das Thema "Kunst im Dienst der Nation" wird so lange nicht an Brisanz verlieren, wie der Nationalismus in Politik und Gesellschaft auch die Ausdrucksmittel der Bildenden Kunst zu seinen Zwecken nutzt, beispielsweise um Identitat nationaler Gruppen durch Bilder, Skulpturen und Architekturen zu stiften oder zu bekraftigen, aber auch um diese Konstrukte mit den Mitteln der Kunst zu attackieren. Die in diesem Band versammelten Beitrage zeigen exemplarisch, auf welche Weise die Kunst zur Formung nationaler Identitaten beigetragen hat. Das Thema wird aus zwei verschiedenen Blickwinkeln fokussiert: Einerseits geht es um die kunstlerischen Konstruktionen nationaler Kunst. Analysiert werden sowohl nationale Ikonographien als auch die nationalen Aufladungen bestimmter Materialien, Farben, Techniken oder Ornamente. Andererseits widmet sich der Band jedoch auch der nationalen Vereinnahmung, Instrumentalisierung und Kategorisierung von Kunstwerken, wie sie von der Kunstkritik, der Kunstgeschichte, den Museen oder anderen Institutionen betrieben werden. Da der Nationalismus erst um 1800 zu einem wesentlichen Sinnstiftungs- und Orientierungsmuster wurde, ist der Blick in besonderem Masse auf die Kunst der Moderne gerichtet. Gleichwohl wurden bewusst auch Vor- und Fruhformen einer sich patriotisch gebardenden Kunst ins Blickfeld einbezogen. Die daraus resultierende Bandbreite bietet einen vielschichtigen Querschnitt durch die kunsthistorische Nationalismus-Forschung."

Few political phenomena have proved as confusing or as difficult to comprehend as nationalism. There is no established consensus on its identity, genesis or future. Are we, for example, in the process of being thrust back into a nineteenth-century world of competitive and aggressive great powers and petty nationalisms? Or, rather, are we being flung headlong into a new, globalized and supra-national millennium? Has the nation-state outlived its usefulness and exhausted its progressive and emancipatory role, or has nationalism always been implicated in an exclusivist ethnic and militaristic logic? Mapping the Nation seeks to address these and other questions about the nature and destiny of the "national question" in the present epoch. A comprehensive and definitive reader on the subject, with contributions from some of the most significant and stimulating theorists of the nation-state, it presents a wide range of divergent ideas and controversies. Leading off with powerful statements of the classic liberal and socialist positions, by Lord Acton and Otto Bauer, there then follows an historical-sociological debate between the late Ernest Gellner and the Czech historian Miroslav Hroch, the one stressing the connections between nationalism and the transition away from agrarian society, the other emphasizing its variability and real anthropological basis. John Breuilly and Anthony D. Smith, two of the leading British specialists, provide a counterpoint to each other with considerations on the respective importance of political leadership and continuing ethnic communities in the construction of nationalist movements. Gopal Balakrishnan, in a carefully honed critique of Benedict Anderson's seminal Imagined Communities, and Partha Chatterjee, from the Subaltern Studies circle, offer crucial insights on the limitations of the Enlightenment approach to nationhood, as do Sylvia Walby and Katherine Verdery with their reflections on the entanglements of nation, gender and identity politics. Sociologist Michael Mann delivers an authoritative refutation of the chatter about the "death of the nation-state." Finally, relating the theoretical questions directly to the politics of our time, renowned historian Eric Hobsbawm, provocative theorist Tom Nairn, and the outstanding political philosopher Jürgen Habermas discuss, with varying degrees of optimism and pessimism, the future of the national project.

Nation and Narration

Bhabha, in his preface, writes 'Nations, like narratives, lose their origins in the myths of time and only fully encounter their horizons in the mind's eye'. From this seemingly impossibly metaphorical beginning, this volume confronts the realities of the concept of nationhood as it is lived and the profound ambivalence of language as it is written. From Gillian Beer's reading of Virginia Woolf, Rachel Bowlby's cultural history of Uncle Tom's Cabin and Francis Mulhern's study of Leaviste's 'English ethics'; to Doris Sommer's study of the 'magical realism' of Latin American fiction and Sneja Gunew's analysis of Australian writing, Nation and Narration is a celebration of the fact that English is no longer an English national consciousness, which is not nationalist, but is the only thing that will give us an international dimension.

This volume presents the latest research by some of the world's leading figures in the fast growing area of immigration studies. Relating the study of immigration to wider processes of social change, the book focuses on two key areas in which nation-states are being challenged by thisphenomenon: sovereignty and citizenship.Bringing together the separate clusters of scholarship which have evolved around both of these areas, Challenge to the Nation-State disentangles the many contrasting views on the impact of immigration on the authority and integrity of the state. Some scholars have stressed the stubborn resistanceof states to relinquish territorial control, the continued relevance of national citizenship traditions, and the `balkanizing' risks of ethnically divided societies. Others have argued that migrations are fostering a post-national world. In their view, states' immigration policies are increasinglyconstrained by global markets and an international human rights regime, membership as citizenship is devalued by new forms of postnational membership for migrants, and national monocultures are giving way to multicultural diversity. Focusing on the issue of sovereignty in the first section, andcitizenship in the second, this compelling new study seeks to clarify the central stakes and opposing positions in this important and complex debate.

Launched with the enthusiasm and support of many thousands of Australians, the One Nation party gave expression to the anger and disenchantment of voters drawn to Pauline Hanson's views on race, immigration and national identity. In this landmark study, scholars in political and social research bring into focus the character and origins of One Nation; its organisation and right-wing links; the unprecedented role of an influential minor party in state parliament; and its indelible impact upon Australian political life. In particular this timely new book analysis One Nation's electoral failure in the 1998 federal and the subsequent NSW elections, and its subsequent deregistration and investigation for fraud. There is a key chapter on Aboriginal Australia written from the Murri perspective, while other chapters offer up intriguing social commentary on the wider issues of an Australian political populism; national identity; and the impact of globalisation.
