IMAGINED COMMUNITIES Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism

by | Read by Kevin Foley

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This classic work, published in 1991, focuses on nationalism and nation-state building throughout the world—from medieval times through the early modern period, especially, the eighteenth through the early twentieth century. Kevin Foley narrates in a straightforward manner, carefully enunciating each word. He delivers the complicated concepts slowly to allow listeners time to absorb Anderson’s ideas about community and nationalism. Foley’s flat accent is perfect for this international study despite his sometimes odd pronunciation of words. However, he makes no effort to alter his delivery when the author interjects his comments and personal reflections. As a result, this complex text is better suited to print than audio.
