I am grateful to David Prior for a comment that allows me to stress a very important point, the connection of dignity to nationalism.
Thank you to Dr. Greenfeld for contributing this fascinating piece. I found its overview of the changing meanings of the Left and Right illuminating. I did want to mention one issue that I see arising at the end of the piece. Dr. Greenfeld noted that:
H-Nationalism is proud to publish here the second post of its “The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series”, which looks at the relationship between nationalism and left-wing movements and thinking in a multi-disciplinary perspective. Today’s contribution, by Professor Liah Greenfeld (Boston University), inquires into the pervasive relationship between nationalism and both the right and the left.
First, I want to thank Emmanuel for organising this inspiring debate and allowing us to discuss a topic of crucial importance in contemporary politics.
Here are my replies to the comments above, in reverse order:
On behalf of H-Nationalism, I'd like to thank Daniele Conversi for his excellent post and all participants in the discussion for their stimulating comments. The second post of our series will be published next Monday (20 November). Don't miss it!
