Pressestimmen'... it is bold, well argued and, above all, modern.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'The book is beautifully structured and argued, and very clearly written; even undergraduates could follow the accessible line it draws through the difficulties of social definition, party, nationhood and Empire.'
