Nationalism In Mexico, Japan And India

1246 words - 5 pages

Nationalism has been demonstrated to be at its strongest in almost all nations around the world during the past century (1900s). The consequences of nationalism around the world have both been good and bad. It has caused many wars between nations as well as unity and prosperity among citizens of ones country. Nationalism is the political ideology that stresses people's membership in a nation, a community defined by a common culture and history as well as by territory. Nationalism was strongly seen in Europe and Asia during and after World War II. Among the countries in those continents lie Japan, India and Mexico, which is part of the Americas.
