Beyond Imagined Communities: Reading and Writing the Nation in NineteenthCentury Latin America. Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins UP, pages. Beyond Imagined Communities offers a useful and wide-ranging collection of essays written by .   Imagined Communities gives us the beginning of a way to think about just such matters, in its treatment of the effect of print capitalism on the day-to-day imagining of those things called ‘languages’, and its reflections on the role of the newspaper and the novel. ‘In a rather special sense, the book was the first modern-style mass.

        This is a book about the difficulties of thinking and acting politically in ways that refuse the politics of nationalism. The book offers a detailed study of how contemporary attempts by theorists of cosmopolitanism, citizenship, globalism and multiculturalism to go beyond nationalism often reproduce key aspects of a nationalist by: Imagined Communities ran against the grain of the historiographical research of its time by placing the Americas, rather than Europe, at the centre of its analysis. Nationalism, Anderson noted, developed in the 18th and 19th centuries in the United States, Brazil, and the former Spanish colonies, much earlier than in most of Europe.

      Anderson’s Imagined Communities builds on this understanding of public space and emphasizes the ways certain forms of media give rise to certain types of political community. The book’s thesis is that “print capitalism” gave rise to nationalism as people began to imagine their relationships with one another in new ways. Although this chapter was originally Anderson’s conclusion, nearly all editions of Imagined Communities include the two chapters he inserted in the second edition. Nevertheless, this chapter still concludes the primary argument of the book—the two additional chapters just cover two issues Anderson felt went insufficiently addressed in the first version.
