INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR to a Canadian author & impresario who brought him to Toronto for a reading, with the inscribee's tidy ink name and date at front. "For___, the impresario - with fond regards and esteem, as ever, Michael Ignatieff". #83 on the Literary Review of Canada's list of the 100 most important Canadian books. "On one level this is simply a series of well-written reportages of insurgent nationalism in the Balkans, Germany, Ukraine, Quebec, Kurdistan and Northern Ireland by a journalist with a keen and probing mind. But appearing as it did just shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was a book that redefined world affairs for a popular readership, declaring - and this felt new at the time- that "the key language for our age is ethnic nationalism."From a Canadian perspective, the inclusion of Quebec along with other much bloodier conflicts both shocked Anglo-Canadians and led them to a deeper understanding of Québécois aspirations. - Bronwyn Drainie".; Signed by Author 0374114404
