Scott, Yale University"This book is a sophisticated treatment of the moral economy of contemporary substate nationalism in the developed West.

Drawing in particular on a wide range of elite and base-level militant interviews, this book emphasizes the diversity of political orientations in these societies and develops an original interpretation of the sources and political consequences of variations in orientations."—Hudson Meadwell, Mc Gill University"Visions of Sovereignty makes a very original theoretical contribution to our understanding of the concept of sovereignty.
