Nationalism and Culture is a detailed and scholarly study of the development of nationalism and the changes in human cultures from the dawn of history to the present day and an analysis of the relations of these to one another. It tells the story of the growth of the State and the other institutions of authority and their influence on life and manners, on architecture and art, on literature and thought.

It traces the evolution of religious and political systems and their relation to the authoritarian State on the one hand and to the people on the other; it analyzes the Nation as alleged community of race, of culture, of language, of interest. It presents in its 592 pages a series of cross-sections of European society at successive historical periods and relates them to one another; it offers copious illustrations of the literature of every period and country. It is at every point illuminated by the interpretative comment of the author, scholarly, brilliant, poetic, human; it is the ripened fruit of thirty years of intensive and devoted study by a man in every way fitted for the task.

.".. an important contribution to political philosophy, both on account of its penetrating and widely informative analysis of many famous writers, and on account of the brilliant criticism of state-worship." -- Bertrand Russell

"Rocker's wide historical background, his richness of reference, his deep organic humanism give to his thesis far more than the academic qualifications it likewise possesses. A book worthy to be placed on the same shelf that holds Candide, The Rights of Man and Mutual Aid." -- Lewis Mumford

.".. extraordinarily original and illuminating." -- Albert Einstein

.".. tolerant, modest, and aware of thee values in culture." -- Herbert Read
