Neil Davidson talks about his new book, Nation-States
Thursday 11 August, 6.30pm, £2 (refreshments provided)
In his latest collection of essays, Neil Davidson brings his analytical powers to bear on the concept of the capitalist nation-state. He draws out how nationalist ideology and consciousness is used to bind the subordinate classes to “the nation,” while simultaneously using “the state” as a means of conducting geopolitical competition for capital.
Neil Davidson currently lectures in Sociology with the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of The Origins of Scottish Nationhood (2000), Discovering the Scottish Revolution (2003), for which he was awarded the Deutscher Memorial Prize, How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions? (2012), Holding Fast to an Image of the Past (2014) and We Cannot Escape History (2015). Davidson is on the editorial board of the Scottish Left Project website and a member of the Radical Independence Campaign.
