(p.1) Introduction
Nationalism and War

John Hutchinson

Oxford University Press

The interaction between nationalism and war has been relatively neglected in explaining state formation, the rise of nations, and the forming of an international system out of imperial collapse. This introduces the rationale of the book and how it is distinctive. It outlines the organization of the book into five substantive chapters, the first four focusing on how warfare in different forms affects states, nation formation, and the interstate system, the fifth turning to the other side of the relationship, how nationalism influences dispositions to war-making. It elaborates the theoretical approach, of ethnosymbolism, in context of the debates in nationalist scholarship. It also supplies definitions of the main concepts.

Keywords:   nationalism, nation, state formation, war, ethnosymbolism, imperial collapse, international system
