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 citizenship requirements—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.”
