Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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
