Reviews

"Dan Lainer-Vos brings insight and new knowledge to one of the important ways nationalism and nation-building remain vital amid the global connections of today's world. Transnational fundraising supports national projects and sustains national ties. The Zionist and Irish examples are rich and informative in themselves and also the basis for advancing knowledge of broad significance." Craig Calhoun, London School of Economics and Political Science "A unique take on the voluminous literature on nationalism and national identity. Lainer-Vos locates nation-building in diaspora communities that send money home to their national states that are engaged in highly contentious nationalist struggles. The idea of looking at the strength of national identity in the homeland and the diaspora through the lens of contributions to bond drives is original and compelling. Lainer-Vos unites economic sociology and political sociology in a novel way. The choice of the two cases, Ireland and Israel, is apt. Sinews of the Nation, impeccably researched and well written, injects new life into a well trodden field." Mabel Berezin, Cornell University "How are nations built? Drawing from Irish and Zionist experiences, Dan Lainer-Vos' Sinews of the Nation demonstrates the crucial role of monetary transactions in forging national movements. With style, compelling arguments, and fascinating evidence, Lainer-Vos sets up a novel research agenda. A welcome contribution to political and economic sociology." Viviana A. Zelizer, Princeton University
