Nationalism is conventionally associated with the emergence of the bourgeoisie. The feudal order is characterized by localism while the hallmark of socialism is its internationalism. The growth of national consciousness and the formation of nation-states that mark the interregnum between these two epochs are the historical accoutrements of the bourgeois order; in a historical sense they constitute essentially bourgeois tasks.

In the third world context however, there is a curious displacement: the trajectory of development is such that bourgeois tasks devolve upon other classes as well.
