  • Chechen nationalism
  • Cuban nationalism
  • Czech nationalism
  • Danish nationalism
  • Dutch nationalism
  • Finnish nationalism
  • Georgian nationalism
  • Khmer nationalism

  • Lithuanian nationalism
  • Mexican nationalism
  • Mongolian nationalism
  • Norwegian nationalism
  • Pashtun nationalism
  • Portuguese nationalism
  • Slovak nationalism
  • South African nationalism
  • Swedish nationalism

This edit, removing an item from the list above caught my eye. I was going to suggest adding Philippine nationalism to the list, but I see that it is not a WP:redlink — it's a redirect to the Filipino nationalism article, which may or may not amount the same thing (probably is in that case, but maybe not in all similar cases).

Also, there are quite a few nationalism articles not categorized into Category:Nationalism by country. A google search for allintitle:"nationalism" site:en.wikipedia.org got only 735 hits. That includes a lot of articles not tied to particular countries, but it seems like a manageable number of items to audit.

How about wikilinking all the list entries to make it clear which have articles and which do not? Alternatively, how about creating a List of Nationalisms article (maybe with a better title) which includes a By country section?. Working from and maintaining a list in a mainspace article would beat working from a list in an article talk page section. I might create such an article if no one else does that, but I'd like to see some discussion before I do that. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:58, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Nationalism as a social construct[edit]

Re this edit and this revert, this doesn't look to me like an "either it is or it is not" situation. Rather, it looks like a situation where there are conflicting points of view (see e.g., [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], etc.). It looks to me as if WP:DUE ought to be considered. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 12:16, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

We seem to be back on this. Identical IP address again dropping in "social construct" with no comment. I reverted because I remember it as a point of contention, and I want to get it documented here. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 21:07, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Polish nationalism[edit]

I have suggested merging the Poland section into the Polish nationalism article - discussion at Talk:Polish nationalism. This section is the only nation-specific section in this article. It would be impractical to include summaries for all individual nations in this article so for consistency we should include none. Polly Tunnel (talk) 13:02, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Wagon piled up with corpses, is it really necessary?[edit]

I realise this can be the eventual result of ultra-nationalist behaviour, but is that photo really necessary? I'm sure there's a policy about it somewhere. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MarkiPoli (talkcontribs) 12:18, 12 August 2014 (UTC) The Reality is too ugly, eh? Ingroups and outgroups Hail "Ingroup", down with "Outgroup"! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.168.60.35 (talk) 16:56, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

The concept of nationalism[edit]

Why does this article seem obsessed with identity rather than nationalism as a political formation? The idea of the nationstate and people like Bismarck in contrast to the old multinational formations of Europe at the time held together by nobles.

Even people exercising highly abstract and idealized forms of nationalism like Hitler made it very clear that his main gripe with the Habsburgs/aristocrats and the Austrian Empire was their impediment of a German nationstate.

All in all this article needs more historical context and concrete examples of what nationalism entailed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.170.195.165 (talk) 13:45, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Nationalism in the novel[edit]

I have suggested on the on the Talk page of Novel [9] that a section from that article on 'Nationalism in the novel' might possibly be moved to this article. Would this be acceptable? Rwood128 (talk) 14:18, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

But see subsequent comment re deleting the section because it is original research. Rwood128 (talk) 13:04, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
