Nationalism and ethnosymbolism: history, culture and ethnicity in the formation of nations. [Steven Elliott Grosby; Athena S Leoussi;] -- 'Nationalism and Ethnosymbolism' first introduces the main theoretical considerations that have arisen in nationalism studies in the past two decades. It then presents a collection of case studies. Ethnosymbolism explains nationalism as a dynamic, evolutionary phenomenon and stresses the importance of symbols, myths and traditions in the development of nations and nationalism. Modernism proposes that nationalism is a recent social phenomenon that needs the socio-economic structures of modern society to exist. Ethnosymbolism emerges from the theoretical critique of modernism. Broadly speaking, the term refers to an approach which emphasizes the role of myths, symbols, memories, values and traditions in the formation, persistence and change of ethnicity and nationalism (Smith d: 84).
