Elections and Peace in Colombia

Floria, Carlos. Nacionalismo Imperial. Pasiones Nacionalistas (Buenos Aires: Fondo de Cultura Económica, 2004) – en prensa.

Este libro es una edición actualizada de su trabajo Pasiones Nacionalistas, en donde se estudia el concepto de nación a partir de dos rumbos divergentes: el que sostiene que la nación se constituye por la pertinencia a un grupo étnico y el que vincula su origen al contrato social. Los ensayos de la publicación de 1998 tuvieron su origen en el paso del Dr. Carlos Floria por el Woodrow Wilson Center cuando llevaba a cabo su investigación sobre el nacionalismo como cuestión trasnacional. Como plantea el Dr. Floria, el tema del nacionalismo es central para poder entender las crisis políticas, por lo pronto del siglo XX y claramente también, del caso argentino.
