Description/Abstract

It is well known that the universalist predilection of Marx and Engels' writings led them to predict the eventual dissolution of nations and their replacement by a community of humankind. This essay argues that despite this universalist bias their writings do provide at least partial explanations of both nationalism and the rise of the nation-state. It is argued that Marx and Engels provide four perspectives on the subject; two on nationalism and two on the nation-state. The contribution therefore examines the instrumentalist and uneven development accounts of nationalism and the technological and social class explanations of the nation-state.
