       that commemorations have their uses": producing national 
       identities in celebration -- 3. "Our country by the world 
       received": centennial celebrations in 1876 and 1888 -- 4. 
       "To remind ourselves that we are a united nation": 
       bicentennial celebrations in 1976 and 1988 -- 5. Making 
       nations meaningful in the United States and Australia. 
520    What do people think when they imagine themselves as part 
       of a nation? Nation and commemoration answers this 
       question in an exploration of the creation and recreation 
       of national identities through commemorative activities. 
       Extending recent work in cultural sociology and history, 
       Lyn Spillman compares centennial and bicentennial 
       celebrations in the United States and Australia to show 
       how national identities can emerge from processes of 
       "cultural production." She systematically analyzes the 
       symbols and meanings of national identity in these two 
       "new nations," identifying changes and continuities, 
       similarities and differences in how visions of history, 
       place in the world, politics, land, and diversity have 
       been used to express nationhood. The result is a deeper 
       understanding, not only of American and Australian 
       national identities, but also of the global process of 
       nation-formation.
