Titre: L'État-nation, Une forme de fermeture sociale Auteur:Wimmer, Andreas Description:
The study begins with a critical examination of two opposing, theories of nationalism. Next, the relationship between the State and nationalism in the form of the nation state is seen as a process of social formation during which a compromise is established between public and private elites, and the people: loyalty is exchanged for the right to participate in social rights. In the third part, the author considers the future of a number of Southern states in relation to the fundamentals of nation formation

Titre: Power and Pride: National Identity and Ethnopolitical Inequality around the World Auteur:Wimmer, Andreas Description:
Abstract: Why do some individuals embrace nationalist rhetoric and feel proud of their citizenship while others do not? This article introduces an exchange-theoretic perspective, according to which national pride depends on access to political power. Seen from this perspective, members of ethnic groups that are not represented in national-level government should be less proud of their nation than those included in the polity. Furthermore, ethnic violence in the past or power-sharing arrangements in the present should reduce trust in the future stability of political representation and thus pride in the nation. From a dynamic point of view, members of ethnic groups whose level of political representation decreased in the past should also see their nation in a less positive light today. To show this, the author uses existing surveys to assemble a new data set with answers to a similar question about national pride. It covers 123 countries that comprise 92 percent of the world’s population. For roughly half of these countries, the ethnic groups listed in the surveys could also be found in another data set that contains information on the political status of these groups. Multilevel ordered logistic regressions at both the country and the group level confirm these hypotheses while taking into account a wide range of individual-level and country-level variables discussed in the existing literature.

Titre: Ethnic boundary making as strategic action: reply to my critics Auteur:Wimmer, Andreas Sujet:Social Sciences (General) ; Women'S Studies Description:
I am grateful to the five distinguished colleagues who took the time to read the book carefully and to offer insightful criticism and comments. Most of the points aim at definitional problems or matters of theoretical architecture. Perhaps I should therefore state at the outset of this reply that the book was written in the hope of going beyond discussing the abstract and general matters that have preoccupied the field in the past and of moving towards an empirically oriented, comparative analysis of the variety of forms under which the ethnic phenomenon appears. I am relieved to note that all five reviewers agree that the book has made some progress towards achieving this goal. Of course I will engage my critics on the terrain that they choose, not only as a matter of conversational politeness, but because they indeed raise important and interesting issues, even though many relate only tangentially, as Brubaker notes, to the main themes and ambitions of the book. I will group similar comments together and respond as succinctly as possible. In the final section, remaining points raised by individual reviewers will be addressed in a more cursory way.
