We use the sub-nationalisms of Quebec and Scotland to understand nationalism theory and nation-building in the postmodern era. We contend that nationalisms in our current postmodern period are predominantly led by the petite bourgeoisie, in contrast to the ones of the past led by the bourgeoisie.

We ask: Can a nation-building projects led by the petite bourgeoisie be successful? What value do they have to an internationalist socialist project?
