Example text

Firstly, whilst the two earlier periods are here presented as quite different, they should perhaps be regarded as ideal types. It is understandable that the architects of the post-war settlements paid attention only to the issues that were of greatest concern, namely those that they feared might spark off another war, but it is simply not credible that all would be secessionists evaluated their claims by the same criteria. During the first period, European nations who were denied self-determination such as Ireland, did not meekly abandon their nationalist aspirations simply because their masters were on the winning side, nor did colonial territories such as India, cease to consider themselves candidates for self-determination simply because they were not located in Europe.

The metropolitan centres should not seek to impose their preferences on others, but, where they had a hand in destroying pre-existing social structures and institutions, they had an obligation to assist in reconstruction. In the end, the main wave of decolonization was swift due to the determination to have it, and a lack of will to oppose it. In this second phase, self-determination is firmly linked to the decolonization process, but the equivalence is not entirely precise. Decolonization did not proceed uniformly throughout the half century that separated the end of the Second World War from the end of the Cold War.

But whether this means that the nationalism of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was merely frozen during the Cold War and has now defrosted, or is something entirely new, is a matter of conjecture. The answer here depends on the construction of social reality in which the worldview is grounded. For example, many would argue that the interest in nations is not novel. Far from heralding a new way of thinking about the world, the present represents a return to normal politics after the aberration of the Cold War.
