Pp. ? + 284, acknowledgments, introduction, tables, notes, bibliography, index. $47.50 cloth, $22.95 paper Rogers Brubaker's Ethnicity without Groups offers, in eight self-contained chapters, an entry into current sociological thinking surrounding ethnicity, immigration, assimilation, cognition and conceptualization of stereotypes; collective memory and commemoration; and relationships among ethnicity, violence, and nationalism. Folklorists will find much to ponder in Chapter 8, which compares the sesquicentennial commemorations of the Revolutions of 1848 in Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia and reveals the malleability and manipulability of collective memory at the hands of contemporary cultural and political interpreters, underlining once again the value of an "ethnicity without groups."
