I know Anderson has done more work in the area since the original publication of this work, but I have not read it yet. I hope that work refines his original thesis a bit which seems to simplistic on the chain of causation from material base to the effect of nationalism
I know Anderson has done more work in the area since the original publication of this work, but I have not read it yet. I hope that work refines his original thesis a bit which seems to simplistic on the chain of causation from material base to the effect of nationalism.
