This book offers a comparative view of nine historic separatist movements, some of which have achieved the break-up of an empire or a state, and others that to date have not. The authors analyze the long term effects of secession: after partition, ethnic strife typically continues for generations; minorities decline in status; and democracy and human rights are derogated.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A powerful, practical demonstration of the unacceptably high human, social, economic, political, and military costs of separatism and partition through wars of secession. The book proposes political alternatives to promote democracy and protect minority rights through non-territorial electoral constituencies and weighted referendums. Valuable to scholars in many fields and highly recommended as a supplementary college reading, the book is also vital to anyone in the media and the public concerned with multicultural conflict and current international events. -- Andre Gunder Frank, University of Toronto
The book makes a significant contribution to research on racism by shedding light on the process of the construction of racialized identities, as well as the interconnectednessof race and gender as social constructs. The deconstruction of racial and gender difference in white supremacist discourse reveals their construction to be a political act shaped by power relations. * Sociological Abstracts, April 2000 *
This Volume brings an interdisciplinary perspective to the analysis of various separatist movements for the purpose of generating discourse that could eventually lessen the human suffering that accompanies such movements. * Sociological Abstracts, April 2000 *
