The ethnic origins of nations by A. D Smith( Book )

32 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How and when did nations emerge? Are they purely modern phenomena? This wide-ranging book examines their social and historical roots and the main features of contemporary national identity. Rejecting older views which saw nations as immemorial and recent theories which regard them as products of modern capitalism and industrialism, Anthony D. Smith presents an original interpretation that traces their genealogy to premodern ethnic foundations. In the first part of the book the author offers an extensive investigation of different types of ethnic communities, myths and resistance movements. He shows how important inter-state warfare and organized religion have been for maintaining durable ethnic communities, drawing on many examples from the ancient world and medieval Europe. In the second part of the book, Dr Smith examines the formation and features of modern nations, and shows how they have been reconstructed by intelligentsias from older ethnic ties and sentiments. The Ethnic Origins of Nations is analytical, informative and broadly comparative. The author argues that modern nations--a fusion of premodern ethnic identities and modern 'civic' elements--require the symbols, myths and memories of ethnic cores if they are to generate a sense of solidarity and purpose in a secular era; and that the intense conflicts created by contemporary ethnic nationalisms will continue unabated until there is greater appreciation of the inner 'antiquity' of many modern nations."--Page 4 of cover

International financial markets : the performance of Britain and its rivals by A. D Smith( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book measures and explains the performance of major competitor countries in international financial services. Covering the markets for foreign exchange, mergers and acquisition advice, syndicated loans, Eurobonds, international equities, Eurocommercial paper, and Euro-paper notes, the author assesses performance on the basis of the shares of the major institutional players in the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Explanations for the contrasts in national performance are sought through interviews with senior officials of financial institutions operating in selected markets. The role and importance of a number of explanatory factors are then examined, including the structure of national banking sectors, capital inputs, technology, regulation, and domestic economic conditions. The book concludes by asking how the banking sectors of different countries are likely to fare as international trade in financial services is liberalised
