Providing an original perspective on the construction of nations and national identities, this book examines national symbols and ceremonies, arguing that, far from being just superficial or decorative, they are in fact an integral part of nation building, maintenance and change.
GABRIELLA ELGENUIS British Academy Research Fellow at Nuffield College, the Department of Sociology, University of Oxford, UK. Her research interests include national symbols, national days and national museums, diaspora communities in Britain and the decline of traditional identities.
