Remaking the Nation: Place, Identity and Politics in Latin America

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1996 - Science - 196 pages
Remaking the Nation presents new ways of thinking about the nation, nationalism and national identities.
Drawing links between popular culture and indigenous movements, issues of 'race' and gender, and ideologies of national identity, the authors draw on their work in Latin America to illustrate their retheorisation of the politics of nationalism.
This engaging exploration of contemporary politics in a postmodern, post new-world-order uncovers a map of future political organisation, a world of pluri-nations and ethnicised identities in the ever-changing struggle for democracy.
