The Invention of Tradition

Review :

A unique overview about how culture is manufactured, nationalized, and manipulated for strategic benefits, with real examples in history. The author, a Marxist, goes over these ideas with fairly serious evidence and analysis. The writing also clearly shows the author to have a thoughtful understanding of the different zeitgeists that existed in these cultures before they were revised by national governments.
