Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Introduces the idea that hidden within the borders of the 35 nation-states of Europe are twice that many stateless nations: distinct cultures, often with their own language, but with little or no political or legal status. Predicts that an integrated Europe will recognize and protect the rights of the small nations. Includes capsule profiles, but little hard data. No index. 10.5" wide. Annotation c.
