"This book bears the unmistakable hallmarks of a work by Anthony D. Smith. The theme, the breadth of cases covered, generous sprinkles of insights from history of art and measured critiques of modernist positions are all Anthony D. Smith par excellence. There are no nasty surprises and the reader can simply sit back and let his/her mind wander off to enjoy the intellectual tour under Smith's sure guidance." (European History Quarterly, 2011) “Smith’s attempt to reintegrate pre-modern history into the study of nations and nationalism is certainly to be welcomed, as it highlights the degree to which even modern nationalism draws on cultural practices and ideological concepts that are indeed of very old origin.” (Journal of Contemporary History, July 2009)
"In its organization, theory, and scholarship, the book is outstanding." (CHOICE)
