Şahane kitap! Eğer "millet diye bir şey var mı yoksa icat mı ediliyor?"; "milliyetçilik nedir?" gibi konular ilginizi çekiyorsa. Özkırımlı, 1970'lerden bugüne kadar üç farklı kuramsal bakış açısı içinde çeşitlenmiş belki yüzlerce çalışmadan çok net, anlaşılır bir literatür özeti veriyor önce. Bu özet, millet ve milliyetçilik kavramlarını ele alan yaklaşımlara yönelik eleştirileri de içeriyor. Bunda yazarın kusuru yok elbette ama eleştiriler, "indirge [...]

I found Umut Özkirimli’s Theories of Nationalism: A Critical Introduction helpful in establishing some of the concepts, theories and writers on the history of theory and approaches to looking at nationalism.

Good introduction to theories of nationalism. spotted references to Halliday and Calhoun that I guess Ozkirimli is in line with

türkiye'de milliyetçilik/ulusçuluk denince akla gelen iki isimden biri umut özkırımlı, levent ürer ile birlikte. çalışması türkçe literatürün en sağlam başvuru kaynağı, maalesef henüz bu anlamda ülkede sağlam bir literatür oluşmamış durumda. her şey iyi ve net açıklanıyor ama tek başına okunması yeterli değil, yazarın incelediği düşünürlerin kitapları ile beraber okunursa daha faydalı olacağına inanıyorum.

If there is a better introductory text to the theories of nationalism, I am unaware of it. It is clearly written without dumbing anything down, well-organized, and hits all of the important theorists (I wish he spent a bit more time on Anthony Marx, but that might be a matter of personal preference). If you are all interested in this subject, you should read this book.

Would that every subject had an introduction this lucid, fair, and efficient. I could joke that Ozkirimli has followed Aquinas' advice of maintaining a deliberately dry style so as to remain objective, but if so, that is more a recommendation of the method than an insult to the book.
