Dear All,

Below in this message I am  enclosing the call for book proposals to a
new series, Nationalisms Across the Globe, published by Peter Lang. We
consider monographs, collections of articles and conference proceedings.
All the published volumes will be available via amazon.com
<http://amazon.com>.
Please, feel free to pass this call to your friends and colleagues, and
also to post it in appropriate discussion lists and the like.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Tomasz Kamusella
Co-editor
Nationalisms Across the Globe


*Call for Book Proposals*
for new Peter Lang Book Series
*Nationalisms across the Globe*

Although in the 1980s the widely shared belief was that nationalism had
become a spent force, the fragmentation of the studiously non-national
Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia in the 1990s into a
multitude of successor nation-states reaffirmed its continuing
significance. Today all extant polities (with the exception of the
Vatican) are construed as nation-states, and hence nationalism is the
sole universally accepted criterion of statehood legitimization.
Similarly, human groups wishing to be recognized as fully fledged
participants in international relations must define themselves as
nations. This concept of world politics underscores the need for
open-ended, broad-ranging, novel, and interdisciplinary research into
nationalism and ethnicity. It promotes better understanding of the
phenomena relating to social, political, and economic life, both past
and present.

This peer-review series publishes monographs, conference proceedings,
and collections of articles on this topic. It attracts well-researched,
often interdisciplinary, studies which open new approaches to
nationalism and ethnicity or focus on interesting case studies. The
language of the book series is English, with authors/editors of proposed
volumes responsible for meeting the Peter Lang standards of
copy-editing. All are requested to contribute to the cost of
publication, with guidelines available on request.

Proposals and queries should be forwarded to:

  University of Opole, Opole, Poland), tomek672 AT gmail.com
