Ethnic-Nationalism in North America: Some Comparative Features.
Keller, John F.
In the past two decades there has been an upsurge in ethnic nationalism not only in the recently decolonized world, but also in many of the industrialized countries of Europe and North America. Two major ethnic-nationalist movements in North America have been the separatist movement in Quebec and the civil rights movement in the Southern United States. Some recent theories suggest such movements develop in opposition to state encroachment in ethnic affairs. Yet, unlike Quebec, the movement in the South has favored state intervention. Comparative analysis shows both movements were based in distinct labor markets, matured with post-World War II industrialization, and mobilized on the basis of certain social characteristics, but the key to the different attitudes toward the state seems to be the degree of regional political and economic cooptation of which the state is capable.
