Nationalist Myths and Modern Media

Does patriotic pride inevitably develop into nationalistic aggression? Is this exacerbated by the global outreach of the media? And what is the relationship between mainstream politics and increasingly vocal anti-immigrant and far-right groups? This book tackles these thorny questions, from Europe, the US and post-Soviet Russia, to probe the overlaps between national and racial pride, propaganda, political power and the press. Its findings explore diverse topics ranging from the 'War on Terror' to Holocaust denial, from the 'sanctity' of Rasputin to the 'martyrdom' of Rudolf Hess. It gives vital insight into the way the press can be used to propagate nationalist agendas and how old myths can gain new currency through modern forms of media.
