For Love of Country

An Essay on Patriotism and Nationalism

Maurizio Viroli

A Clarendon Press Publication

This book looks at the nature of patriotism and nationalism. It explains the historical reasons for the recurrent identification of nationalism with patriotism and points out the grave implications of this confusion of concepts. It goes on to provide the conceptual tools enabling a republican conception of patriotism to respond to nationalist concerns for the integrity of the cultural identity of a people. This work will be of interest to students and scholars of political theory and political science, as well as to historians of political thought.
