From a variety of perspectives, the contributors discuss the contemporary validity of Renners arguments paying particular attention to theories of state, liberal democracies, minority nationalism and multiculturalism, and models of regional integration.Making an important contribution to the literature on nationalism and national minorities, this volume is a vital research tool for students and scholars of nationalism and political theory.
