...the book taps into an under discussed, albeit relevant political phenomenon, and offers ground for a potentially fruitful avenue of research. The configuration of state nationalisms has many policy implications, and heavily influences the descisions that governments take in both foreign and internal policy areas. Therefore, understanding the confitions under which these nationalisms will take a more open or closed approach to their external relations seems a particularly pertinent research topic. Madalen Meyer-Resende's book is certainly a good point of depature for further explorations of the issue -- Jordi Munoz, Autonomous University of Barcelona
