Evangelicalism and National Identity in Ulster, 1921-1998

A broad interpretative approach to nationalism is outlined and defended as ‘the ideological process by which nations are constructed’. From this perspective, it is argued that, contrary to much opinion, Ulster unionism represents a form of nationalism and thus Irish nationalism and Ulster unionism are two antithetical faces of nationalism at work. Analysis of the ideological content (expressed in its national identity) of a nationalist movement will reveal the character of the nationalism in question.
