Publisher's Summary

Throughout history, humanity has borne witness to the political and moral challenges that arise when people place national identity above allegiance to geo-political states or international communities.This audiobook discusses the concept of nations and nationalism from social, philosophical, geological, theological and anthropological perspectives. It examines nationalist conflicts past and present, including recent struggles in the Balkans and the Middle East. Above all, this fascinating and comprehensive work clearly shows how feelings of nationalism are an inescapable part of being human.

good content, obnoxious narrator

The choice of Marc Vietor to narrate this book is unfortunate. His faux-"highbrow" reading voice is pompous and ponderous, at best a ridiculous and annoying self-parody. He should stick to science fiction, where I guess this sort of inflated wind-baggery passes as some species of advanced knowingness.
