After Independence breaks new ground by examining the changes to nationalism after independence in seven new states. This innovative volume challenges scholars and specialists to rethink conventional views of ethnic and civic nationalism and the division between primordial and constructivist understandings of national identity.Where do nationalists go once they get what they want?

We know rather little about how nationalist movements transform themselves into the governments of new states, or how they can become opponents of new regimes that, in their view, have not taken the self-determination drive far enough. This stellar collection contributes not only to comparative theorizing on nationalist movements, but also deepens our understanding of the contentious politics of nationalisms ultimate product--new countries.--Charles King, Chair of the Faculty and Ion Ratiu Associate Professor, Georgetown University School of Foreign ServiceThis well-integrated volume analyzes two important variants of nationalism-postcolonial and postcommunist-in a sober, lucid way and will benefit students and scholars alike.--Zvi Gitelman, University of MichiganLowell W.

Barrington is Associate Professor of Political Science, Marquette University.
