Rich Lowry Trying to Sell a Book

A review by Bradford Littlejohn: Can Nationalism Unite Us?

But what exactly does Lowry mean by “nationalism”? Lowry approvingly quotes Anthony Smith, who defines nationalism as “a belief that all those who shared a common history and culture should be autonomous, united, and distinct in their recognized homelands.” We can break this down into two distinct propositions, both once widely held but now sharply contested.

A relic of 20th ce Yankee civic nationalism.
