By Heather Rae

Why are compelled displacement, ethnic detoxing and genocide a permanent characteristic of nation platforms? during this booklet, Heather Rae locates those practices of 'pathological homogenisation' within the methods of kingdom development. Political elites have time and again used cultural assets to redefine bounded political groups as unique ethical groups, from which outsiders has to be expelled. displaying that those practices predate the age of nationalism, Rae examines situations from either pre-nationalist and nationalist eras: the expulsion of the Jews from 15th century Spain, the persecution of the Huguenots lower than Louis XIV, and within the 20th century, the Armenian genocide, and ethnic detoxing in former Yugoslavia. She argues that these atrocities triggered the improvement of foreign norms of valid nation behaviour that more and more outline sovereignty as conditional. Rae concludes by way of interpreting 'threshold' circumstances - the Czech Republic and Macedonia - to spot the standards that can inhibit pathological homogenization as a mode of state-building.
