Patriotism in the lives of individuals and nations

Daniel Bar-Tal (Editor), Ervin Staub (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


[This] book is multidisciplinary. Psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, a political scientist, and an historian shed light on the phenomenon of patriotism. Although the authors are guided by different disciplinary traditions, perspectives, and approaches, this book provides a systematic, holistic, and coherent analysis of patriotism.
[The contributors contend] that patriotism is a major societal force that shapes not only the identity and behavior of members of nations, but also profoundly affects a variety of intragroup and intergroup processes. . . . The ideology of patriotism serves as a foundation for groups and for the creation of national solidarity and mobilization.
[This book] not only aims to begin to make up for [the neglect of patriotism in social science literature], but also to instigate future conceptual and empirical studies that can shed additional light on patriotism.
