Rutland on America’s ‘Love Affair’ with Nationalism

A report for NPR (National Public Radio) on nationalism in America cites Professor of Government Peter Rutland. Rutland says that, from President Obama on down, Americans embrace nationalism on the left and right. However, because many Americans see nationalism as a “dirty word,” we often refer to our nationalism as “patriotism.” Rutland has a blog devoted to the issue, which can be found here.
