"Among the many strengths of this book are its wide range of case-studies which succeed in demonstrating the multiplicity of forms that cultural expression in conflict situations may take on: parades in Northern Ireland, the politics of archaeology in contested Jerusalem, Muslim headscarves in schools in France, and the controversy over exhibiting the Confederate flag in public places in the American South. This is a first-rate work sure to make a valuable contribution to courses in political science, sociology, anthropology and ethnic and conflict studies."
Kevin Avruch, Associate Director, Institute for Conflict Analysis & Resolution, George Mason University
"This brilliant and much-needed book does more than convincingly illuminate how cultural narratives, ritual expressions, and enactments contribute to the escalation of ethnic conflicts. Marc Ross strikingly documents how and when new ones can be created that are more inclusive, and so contribute to the de-escalation of conflicts and to the solidity and endurance of conflict settlements."
Louis Kriesberg, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Syracuse University and Founding Director of the Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts
Marc Howard Ross examines battles over diverse cultural expressions and demonstrates how culture drives conflict, but can also help mitigate it when groups develop more inclusive narratives and identities that both acknowledge the past and envision a shared future.
