Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 289-290. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1997-97314-000) brings forward contemporary psychological research that situates patriotism in a multidisciplinary perspective, analyzes the dynamics of patriotism, and identifies its varieties and limits. The volume strikes an excellent balance between sophisticated scholarship and readability, and educators and researchers will appreciate the wide range of examples and quotations used to illustrate the divergent representations of patriotism and the powerful sentiments they evoke. The volume offers numerous useful analyses of different kinds of patriotism, its motivational bases, and its outward projection. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
