This paper first explains how war can be seen as a form of patriotism expressed through the rhetoric of nationalism and then looks at the effects that nationalism has on the economic, political, and social aspects of a country.
From the Paper:"It has been remarked that a person's cultural background is influential in the way that they look at and interpret the world around them. The word 'nationalism' brings to mind the hordes that attended rallies in support of Adolph Hitler as he made his rise to power, fame and infamy. The nationalist group defines its focus in terms of geographical identity which may, or may not, include elements of religion, ethnicity or race. Rhetoric is a form of communication whose purpose is to persuade the audience to the presenter's point of view by utilizing an appeal to authority, imagery and tone appropriate to the state of excitement surrounding the event or condition."
