              Synthesising British, French and American traditions, this stimulating and accessible text presents a comprehensive and fascinating introduction to social and cultural anthropology. It offers an original approach by placing social and cultural anthropology in wider contexts inclu...ding those of sociology and biological evolution. In doing so, it encapsulates the complexities of a discipline that addresses the structure, evolution and cultural identity of human societies up to the present day.

              . Llobera's engaged and original book is a welcome addition to the macro-anthropology of European nationalisms, raising old questions with a new twist and combining, surprisingly successfully, the roles of anthropologist and national chronicler. JRAISince it emergence in the 19th... century in response to feudalism, nationalism has been a mixed blessing. Originally seen as a positive force, often enough it has resulted in warfare and persecution of minorities, so much so that, over time, it has been considered a social evil whose apparent decline has been greeted as a positive development. The author disputes this or rather, he maintains that the picture that emerges is more complex: nationalism is not disappearing but has taken on a different form. What we are experiencing is an increasing autonomy of ethnonations, i.e. nations without a state, in the wake of a weakening of the multinational states and the transfer of their sovereignty upwards, in the case of Europe to the federation of the European Union, and downwards to the ethnonations. Catalonia is the major case study in this book but it is embedded in a comprehensive theoretical framework as well as the historical and contemporary reality of Europe, opening up a new perspective. The author, one of the foremost scholars in this field, brilliantly succeeds in developing an original, clear and comprehensive vision of nationalism that is accessible to a wide readership.Josep R. Llobera was born in Havana and brought up in Catalonia. He has made Britain his home since 1969. Since 1996, he has been Visiting Professor of Anthropology at University College London and at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
