Book Overview
While Cornell's Benedict Anderson is best known for his classic book on nationalism, IMAGINED COMMUNITIES, many of his most incisive interventions have been made in his essays. Those collected here span a range of subjects from Aquino's Philippines to political assassination in modern Thailand. Anderson brings out the subtle imbrication of politics, national imaginings, bureaucracy, and modernization.
