Product description

Review

"One of the greatest ... deserves still to be central to our thinking about the world."
--T. J. Clark, London Review of Books

"Anderson's work stands as an inspiration not only to his students, his readers, and all those whose lives have been affected by his work, but also to all those who reject the false choice between politics and scholar¬ship, and who seek to live accordingly."
--Nation

"Anderson transformed the study of nationalism ... and was renowned not only for his theoretical contributions but also for his detailed examinations of language and power in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines."
--New York Times

"Far and away the most influential study of nationalism ... As well-versed in novels and poetry as he was in scholarship, Anderson was an eloquent advocate for global culture."
--Jeet Heer, New Republic

"Everything Anderson wrote was boldly original ... He was never content to tell an audience what they wanted to hear."
--Anthony Reid, Guardian

"This is a book to be owned and read, re-read, and treasured."
--Academic Library Book Review

"Anderson's knowledge of a vast range of relevant historical literature is most impressive; his presentation of the gist of it is both masterly and lucid."
--Edmund Leach, New Statesman

"Everything Anderson wrote was boldly original ... He was never content to tell an audience what they wanted to hear."
--Anthony Reid, Guardian

"A brilliant little book."
--Neal Ascherson, Observer

"Sparkling, readable, densely packed."
--Peter Worsley, Guardian --This text refers to the paperback edition.
