This book uses the frame of “nationalist ideologies” to refer to sets of cultural meanings that are often labeled “nationalisms,” “subnational identities,” and “ethnic nationalisms.” The concept of national ideologies encompasses the production of conceptions of peoplehood, emphasizing how ethnicity, racial identity, and nationalism create public identity. This directs the reader to look at the different ways in which people conceive themselves or are conceived of by others and helps the reader investigate the processes by which these ideas develop, alter, and intergrade in real life.
