    Arguing for a feminist model of nationalism based on the ethics of care (relational, contextual, community centered, favoring attachment and cooperation) as opposed to an abstract masculine ethics of right, this article makes for a compelling and delightful read. Political theory has privileged pure reason over emotion, individual over community, conflict over cooperation, contract over compromise and mind over body. The likes of Carole Pateman (The Sexual Contract) and Martha Nussbaum (Political Emotions) have paved the way for a feminist theory by challenging capitalist patriarchy through their writings. Roopa Rantham’s research insights take us a step forward in that direction.
