Intro to Nationalism

I spent the morning in the struggle to take Lola to the vet. In the end, victory was mine, but she very nearly outwitted me, and we arrived there thirty minutes late as a result.

Anyway, today I'll be trying to get a handle on the current critical writing about nationalism. I'm not actually studying nationalim in my dissertation; but it might come up in places. Also, it's generally good to know what people in the field are saying about Big Topics, if only so that you have something better to say in conversations with other history people than, ''Nationalism... that's like some... crazy shit, huh?''

I will blog the results.
