"This is an ambitious, astute, and timely effort to address one of the most interesting and potentially troubling trends in our contemporary world, namely, the rise of politically charged passions about belonging. Geschiere's judicious and incisive analysis offers a model of how an academic investigation can shed light on a major global problem." - Daniel Jordan Smith, Brown University"
