Authored by Benedict Anderson, “Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism” explains the roots of nationalism, a pertinent element in contemporary politics. The title of the book is indicative of the process through which “nations” came to be “imagined” as being socially constructed artifacts. The European Linguistic Revolution, amongst other elements, is majorly attributed as the origin of the rise of nationalism.
