Book Description

January 31, 2000 0761993592 978-0761993599
This book examines ethnic conflicts in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Nepal and India. It looks at issues such as the unequal allocation and use of natural resources, discrepancies in the political and bureaucratic spheres, and problems of cultural identification and variations in employment opportunities. The authors also discuss language conflicts, the varying degrees of the politicization of ethnicity, and the effects of global and international discourse on local conflicts.
