The title of the book Changing Worlds, Changing Nations: The Concept of Nation in the Transnational Era, underlines the transforming status of the discourse on nationalism and transnationalism. The book focuses on how the realities and identities of people are influenced by the changes taking place in the varying dimensions of nation-states. The term transnationalism sounds simplistic yet it is not so explicit in nature and is apparently enveloped in myriad confounding applications. Transnationalism, as it is largely understood, is a concept that disrupts and scatters the idea of centrality and periphery. It may be properly conceived as a kind of relationship between nation states, a crossing of national borders a cultural/political interplay between different national cultures or a mode of mobility of trans/national subjects. To be more precise transnationalism means a form of multi-nationalism something that shares cultural connections with more than one nation. Changing Worlds Changing Nations consists of thirteen articles that consider the feasibility of nation states in a transnational era and examine the role of language and culture in seeking a new identity for them. The book focuses on the Indian context as a case study of the thematics but it extends necessarily this nationalistic framework to reflect on other, wider contexts. (jacket).
