Overview

Minority nationalism is a significant not to say potent force in the modern world. In many countries new problems of and for minority nationalism have recently surfaced. This book presents a wide ranging examination of the state of minority nationalism in the 1970s and 1980s. It considers many different cases in detail: Britain, Ireland, the Soviet Union, Canada, France, Spain and South Africa. It explores the political and socio-economic circumstances surrounding minority nationalism, analyses its successes and failures in recent years, and looks at an exhaustive range of issues: the structures and politics of minority nationalist movements, relations with governments, ideology, attitudes to human rights, and so on. Interestingly, it views both Afrikaners in South Africa and Protestants in Northern Ireland as cases of minority nationalists in dominant positions finding it increasingly difficult to maintain their positions.
