Patriotism refers to devotion to one's country, and as such it is often considered essential to a cohesive national identity. However, with concerns about xenophobia, nationalism, and chauvinism on the rise, the question of what role patriotism plays in these problematic exclusionary beliefs and practices must be examined. This volume considers various viewpoints on what defines patriotism, how it originated as a concept, and the ways in which it both helps and hinders nations. It examines patriotism through the lens of contemporary political and social issues around the world.
