It is not necessary to accept the claim that pro-secessionist Catalans orchestrated a coup to recognise that their actions constitute the most significant threat to the constitutional order of 1978 since the military held Spanish democracy to ransom in 1981. Chapters 11 and 12 critically examine the interplay of art, education and politics in negotiating relations between the centre and the periphery in and beyond the historical nationalities to make the case that – as opposed to the dominant discourse now surrounding Guernica – culture can be a problem as

about 85 per cent of the population are Irish nationals as many born abroad to Irish emigrants claim Irish nationality, and some immigrants had naturalised by 2011. The single largest group of immigrants came from the UK, over 300,000, or almost 7 per cent of the total population. Almost 56,000 were born in Africa, just 1.2 per cent of the population in 2011.

delegation of Scottish Presbyterian Church leaders met with the Home Secretary requesting immigration controls. An (internal civil service) intergovernmental conference held in July 1928 considered introducing restrictions on economic migrants from both the Irish Free State and from Northern Ireland. The advice of the Dominions Office (which was responsible for Irish affairs), in response to these and other such demands, was that ‘persons of Irish Free State nationality were British subjects by birth in one of his Majesty's dominions and as such could neither be excluded

an even less palatable kind. The increasing success, in Western Europe and elsewhere, of political parties hostile to immigration is a reminder of these possibilities. 18 3(b) Liberal nationalism In On Nationality , David Miller argues that liberalism and nationalism do not have to conflict.

nineteenth century, the development of the political power of the middle classes within capitalist states also refined the concept of the nation. The creation of mass democracies and notions of popular sovereignty during the twentiety century created the notion of nationality being related to citizenship . Nations and national identity, in the eyes of some commentators, are artificial formulations

has divided society and reshaped political institutions. In Spain, the historic nationalities have contributed to reshaping the party system and creating a powerful dynamic of asymmetrical devolution, which is considered below. In the UK, Welsh and Scottish nationalists combined arguments based on internal colonialism and regional affirmation with those of economic need. These brief examples demonstrate that there is no single model of regional political capacity. We would reject a straightforward identity-instrumentalist dichotomy. What passes for instrumentalist

confirmation of it … The Jew by his very nature cannot be emancipated … The Jew himself can behave only like a Jew towards the state, i.e. treat it as something foreign, for he opposes his chimerical nationality to actual nationality, his illusory law to actual law, he considers himself entitled to separate himself from humanity, he refuses in principle to take any part in the movement of history, he looks forward to a future which

girls throughout Britain began to enter industry in unprecedented numbers.4 Nevertheless, while this development altered the composition of the workforce, male Labour activists in Bristol and Northampton continued to articulate a highly restrictive and gendered class identity. Similarly, the war provided activists with an opportunity to express their long-held assumptions about nationality and, at times, race. While a small minority of anti-war activists struggled in vain to preserve the supposed internationalist ethos of the pre-war Labour movement, the majority of

ideas, individuals, circumstances and interests were in place. 1 The interplay between these four concepts can be seen throughout this book. Ideas were certainly not in short supply during this period. The Conservatives were fully engaged with debates about monetarism, economic liberalism, trade union power and governability, the concepts of nationality and race, and choice and burgeoning marketisation in education. There can also be little doubt that there were key individuals at the heart of this story who were in a position to be the conduits of change. Margaret
