National Days: Constructing and Mobilising National Identity

David McCrone, Gayle McPherson

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The book shows how national days are best understood in the context of debates about national identity. It argues that national days are contested and manipulated, as well as subject to political, cultural and social pressure. It brings together some of the most recent research on national days and sets it in a comparative context.
