Is ecomic nationalism an outdated phemen in light of globalization? Ecomic Nationalism in a Globalizing World demonstrates the enduring, and even heightened, ecomic significance of national identities and nationalism in the current age. The volume's contributors, pioneers in the reinterpretation of ecomic nationalism, explore diverse ways in which national identities and nationalism continue to shape contemporary ecomic policies and processes. The authors examine the question in a range of geographical contexts and issues: European Union food politics, competitiveness strategies in New Zealand, East Asian development strategies, Japanese liberalization, monetary politics in Quebec and Germany, and post-Soviet ecomic reforms. Together, the cases explore the policy breadth of nationalism. It is t just a protectionist ideology but is in fact associated with a wide variety of ecomic policies, including support for ecomic liberalization and globalization.
