This book offers a brief, broad, comparative study of ethnic politics that places ethnic conflict within the context of particular political systems. To develop these themes, they are explored by comparing and contrasting the experiences of France, Czechoslovakia and its subsequent division, and Nigeria.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is based on a lifetime's study of ethnopolitical conflict across the globe, including considerable fieldwork. Its case studies are designed to illuminate broader comparative points about how such persistent but fluid demands can be accommodated in the policy processes of various regimes around the world. It is wide-ranging, theoretically informed, and provocative in its conclusions." - Donley T. Studlar, Eberly Family Distinguished Professor of Political Science, West Virginia University"This book is the magnum opus of a scholar who has for many years been publishing seminal works on problems arising from the ethnic heterogeneity of states. Only one with such a background could produce a volume so rich in its variety of source material and so penetrating in its analyses. Innovations include a two-fold classification of ethnic groups predicated upon whether they are living within or without their ethnic homeland, a classification permitting the author to transcend the cleavage between ethnonationalism and ethnicity; a tripartite division of states into mature democratic, post-communist, and emerging categories; and, for each of these three categories, a combination of a wealth of illustrative data drawn from several states, further illustrated by an in-depth, single-state case study. This is truly an important contribution to the literature." - Walker Connor, Distinguished Visiting Professor, Middlebury College
