Drawing its theoretical inspirations from the Weberian tradition, historical sociology and contextualized political analysis, Dufour’s book highlights the social relations, modes of cognition, comparative strategies and social processes that are closely related to the analysis of nationalism. One of its features is to show that, while macrosociological approaches have long dominated the sociology of nationalism, it is no longer possible, in this field as in other branches of political sociology, to ignore the mechanisms of mesosociological levels that make it possible to understand nationalist and ethnic practices in their context. The arguments will be debated by different panelists.
