Another Quote from "The English Patient": On the Nation-State

"We were German, English, Hungarian, African--all of us insignificant to them. Gradually we became nationless. I came to hate nations. We are deformed by nation-states."

Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient, 138.

Speaking of which, has anyone read Spivak and Butler's co-written book, Who Sings the Nation-State? If so, how is it?
