The Virtue of Nationalism
This thought-provoking book by a leading conservative thinker argues that nationalism is the only realistic safeguard of liberty in today's world. It explores the crucial debate of whether we should fight for international government or keep our nations independent and self-determined. The author contends that a world of sovereign nations is the only choice for those who care about personal and collective freedom. Through historical accounts, he shows how a love of national independence brought freedom to diverse peoples, and argues that we must restore this tradition to limit conflict, promote innovation and allow human difference to flourish.
