Liah Greenfeld's books on nationalism instigated a major paradigm shift in modern sociology, and almost instantly made her one of the world's leading authorities on the subject. With wide-ranging implications across the breadth of the humanities, she is renowned for arguing that nationalism is the main cultural foundation of modern society and its economy. Examining her thoughts not only on nationalism, but also literature, philosophy, psychology and much beside, "Nationalism and the Mind" is the only published collection of Greenfeld's essays. Uniting many disparate disciplines into a coherent perspective in philosophical anthropology, the essays provide a comprehensive theory of human nature that will influence social science for years to come. With an insightful introduction by one of her former students, it provides a fascinating resource for anyone wishing to acquaint themselves with one of the most original thinkers of the current era
