Pressestimmen

"Puri is particularly good at demonstrating the extent to which nationalisms are gendered ... The book is an interpretative essay that seeks to realign debate on its subject. In this it is challenging and interesting." Ethnic and Racial Studies "The book explicitly discusses the wide array of debates centered around the theme of nationalism and therefore acts as a work that provides a seminal undersatnding of the issue of nationalism." International Journal of Contemporary Sociology "This is a wonderful entry point for students and faculty trying to get a grip on the often slippery but politically fraught idea, and practice, of nationalism. Puri puts earlier discussions of nationalism into a post-September 11 focus. Moreover, she brings the ongoing debates about the nature and uses of nationalism up to date by showing how central to nationalism are presumptions about women, and sexuality." - Cynthia Enloe, Clark University "This is a thoughtful introduction to the field of nationalism. It successfully analyzes the gendered and sexual dimensions of nationalist projects, and contextualizes them within global, economic, and political relations of power during the colonial period and the present day." - Nira Yuval-Davis, University of East London
