Constituting the Modern Nation

(p.50) 3 Constituting the Modern Nation
Identity of England

Robert Colls

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the ways in which the nation has been represented in modern times as a whole entity — through a political constitution, and through the growing power of mass communications. Both systems put the representation of the many in the hands of the few. Both forms of representation — constitution and communication — could be said to be liberal and modern.

Keywords:   modern nation, political constitution, mass communications, liberalism
