Summary "This collection of essays explores the relationship between nationalism and human rights by probing from various angles the nature of nationalism and the normative orientation of human rights. By critically addressing the tension between nationalism and human rights that is presumed in much of the existing literature, the essays in this volume confront the question of how we should construe human rights: as a normative challenge to the excesses of modernity, particularly those associated with the modern nation-state, or as an adjunct of globalization, with its attendant goal of constructing a universal civilization based on neoliberal economic principles and individual liberty"--Provided by publisher
