Wasn't Imagined Communitites on here before? The reason I asked is because I recently bought it, saw it on this page and decided to put it at the top of the que for reading.

I added a few links and also added a PDF of Race, Nation, Class and the stuff by Frantz Fanon, though I haven't read any of them yet so if anyone wants to add more tags or a more comprehensive intro (I'm copying and pasting from the site I got them from) to them be my guest.

I also think this guide could do with some expanded since Nationalism is and will continue to be a major obstacle even within the International Labour movement.

Edit: I've read the intro's to the Frantz Fanon stuff and I think it might be a good idea to get some clarification since on the surface it seems pretty pro third world nationalism, are the blurbs misguided or was his worked listed for reference or the few pieces of useful info mixed in?

It certainly ought to be there. Maybe also Shlomo Sand - The Invention of the Jewish People:
