"...a welcome and important addition to [the] literature....The contribution to this book are uniformly firstrate.....Excellent."--American Political Science Review

"The essays are usually gems of sustained philosophical analysis, and there are facts and arresting bon mots essential to the arguments."--Choice

"At a time when talk of nationalism conjures up images of bloodshed and despair in Bosnia or Chechnya, it is good to be reminded that there is a non-violent and non-xenophobic nationalism that can stand a scrupulous moral investigation. These essays do not answer all the questions that beset citizens who wish to reconcile their duties to humanity with their love of their own country--but they certainly advance the debate."--Alan Ryan, New College, Oxford

"A first-rate collection. The contributions are of uniformly high quality; they represent a broad range of contemporary philosophical perspectives; and they form an unusually coherent whole....As stimulating a survey of the subject as any philosophical reader could reasonably hope to find between the covers of a single volume."--Charles R. Beitz, Bowdoin College

"These are important essays on important questions: they place issues that are of central practical importance in a theoretical context that illuminates them. Even when I do not agree with them, I find them helpful in framing the issues."--K. Anthony Appiah, Harvard University
