Nations Without Nationalism is an impassioned plea for tolerance and for commonality, aimed at a world brimming over with racism and xephobia. Responding to the rise of neo-Nazi groups in Germany and Eastern Europe and the continued popularity of the National Front in France, Kristeva turns to the origins of the nation-state to illustrate the problematic nature of nationalism and its complex configurations in subsequent centuries. For Kristeva, the key to commonality can be found in Montesquieu's esprit general - his tion of the social body as a guaranteed hierarchy of private rights

Julia Kristeva was born in 1941 in Bulgaria. She was educated by French nuns, studied literature and worked as a journalist before going to Paris in 1966 to do graduate work with Lucien Goldmann and Roland Barthes. While in Paris she finished her doctorate in French literature, became involved in the influential journal Tel Quel, and began psychoanalytic training.

Underlying Julia Kristeva's latest work is the idea that otherness - whether it be ethnic, religious, social, or political - needs to be understood and accepted in order to guarantee social harmony. Nations Without Nationalism is an impassioned plea for tolerance and for commonality, aimed at a world brimming over with racism and xenophobia.Responding to the rise of neo-Nazi groups in Germany and Eastern Europe and the continued popularity of the National Front in France, Kristeva turns to the origins of the nation-state to illustrate the problematic nature of nationalism and its complex configurations in subsequent centuries.For Kristeva, the key to commonality can be found in Montesquieu's esprit general - his notion of the social body as a guaranteed hierarchy of private rights.Nations Without Nationalism also contains Kristeva's thoughts on Harlem Desir, the founder of the antiracist organization SOS Racisme; the links between psychoanalysis and nationalism; the historical nature of French national identity; the relationship between esprit general and Volksgeist; Charles de Gaulle's complex ideas involving the "nation" and his dream of a unified Europe.In the tradition of Strangers to Ourselves, her most recent nonfiction work, Nations Without Nationalism reflects a passionate commitment to enlightenment and social justice. As ethnic strife persists in Europe and the United States, Kristeva's humanistic message carries with it a special resonance and urgency.
  • Could more philosophers be addressing such a salient topic. How do we as a members of the dominant culture respond to immigrants and refugees? How can we welcome, help integrate (without effacing their individuality and cultural heritage) and recognize as 'not other' rather just as a variation on the same theme of humanity? Carol Whitehouse

  • No, there are neither drunken sailors nor scheming Spahis in this book. But like Conrad and Kipling, Kristeva is a foreigner (born in Bulgaria) who has embraced her adoptive country (France) to the point of completely erasing every trace of her homeland. Of course one of her points is to fight the notion of homeland as a positive, yet she has no problem assigning "supranational" virtues to France. She calls herself a "cosmopolitan" -hard to believe when the word France appears many times on each page and there's just one minimal reference to Bulgaria (the editor's prologue says more about her upbringing than the entire book). Besides that, the book is a classic exercise on French style abstraction -Kristeva has an idea (more like a personal opinion) and presents it without any attempt at proof or reality check, as a self evident truth. The method turns overly grotesque in her eulogy of De Gaulle -which does not make any sense and does not even try to make it, it is just a song of love from a woman who got her French visa from his administration.
