Against the Nation

Anti-National Politics in Germany

Authored by Robert Ogman

Following the German reunification process in the 1990s, a new anti-national movement appeared in Germany that rejected all forms of nationalism, including the desirability of national communities and the existence of the nation-state itself.

In "Against the Nation," Robert Ogman covers the background of this movement - the rising Neo-Nazism, racist mob violence, restriction in immigration policies and growing state power - and its urge to organize society around other principles than nationality and borders.

By examining the campaigns and documents the various anti-national tendencies in Germany during this period, Ogman takes a fresh look at the question of nationalism that has haunted the left for more than a century. "Against the Nation" also provides a hope for an emancipated future based on "Something Better than the Nation."
