Tom Nairn (born June 2, 1932 in Freuchie, Fife) is a Scottish theorist of nationalism.

He is considered one of the key thinkers of the (British) New Left. From 1962, with Perry Anderson in New Left Review, he developed a thesis (the "Nairn-Anderson thesis") to explain why Britain did not develop in a 'normal' way, which was defined as the continental European movement to anti-clericalism and Republicanism since the 1789 French Revolution.
