The Present of the Nation
Since the end of the 20th century, globalization has been widely touted. In the midst of globalization, the decline and dysfunction of the nation, and the exit of the nation have been pointed out. Given that view, it can be said that the nation is now a relic of the past. But from another perspective, the state is still at the center of politics. In other words, the nation has not lowered its status, has been dysfunctional, or has been sent off. The nation continues to have overwhelming influence. This book faces the nation head-on from all perspectives of democracy, people, economy, welfare, religion, war, globalization, and international affairs, and considers the role of the nation today.
