Editorial Reviews


...Overall this book manages to systematically summarise the research on ethnic conflicts from different academic and practical political perspectives, while also proposing new ways, or a 'new realism', to understand and help resolving ethnic conflicts. (The Ethnic Conflict Readers Digest)

An immensely interesting and valuable volume which should receive much use in upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses on ethnic conflict, this edited volume brings together more than a score of contributors to examine the prospects for managing the type of protracted ethnic and national conflicts which have recently proven so destructive to multinational states in the contemporary world, and which have often spilled into the international system. (Peace & Change)

An important book. It is very rare to find in a scholarly treatise of this nature a wide representation of different voices arguing a range of analytical standpoints as well as reporting empirical data about root causes, dynamics of intensification, and methods of management and resolution of ethnic conflicts. (H-Genocide)

This volume is a needed addition to the diverse but often incoherent ethnic conflict literature. An impressive list of contributors, for the first time combining accomplished scholars with the expertise of diplomats, NGO officers, and government advisors, shows the entire spectrum of methods, approaches, and worldviews of the various actors concerned about understanding and ultimately preventing ethnic violence. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
