The Transnational Genealogy of Esprit de Corps

First Edition

Luis de Miranda

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Unveils the hidden and conflicting ideologies at stake behind the concept of esprit de corps and its contemporary uses
  • Focuses on the discursive uses of esprit de corps in various transnational contexts and in the long term, from 1700 to present times
  • Combines intellectual history, cultural history, philosophy, history of ideas, discourse analysis, political theory and labour history
  • Offers a fresh look into the modern dialectics of individualism and collectivism, structure and agency, laissez-faire and corporatism
  • Deepens our understanding of the history of corporate capitalism and its military influences, as well as to understand the current revival of occidental nationalism
