Ethnicity, Ethnic Conflicts, Peace Processes

Comparative Perspectives

Edited by: Edward A. Tiryakian

This volume addresses a set of problems that have retained global salience after the demise of the Soviet world. They are problems related to the cohesion and integration of nation-states having multiple ethnic groups competing for national identity and scarce resources. In some instances, fragile peace processes occur with uncertain outcomes. What are the factors involved in the dynamics of these changes? Scholars from a broad range of disciplines examine the relevant issues of race, ethnicity, ethnic tensions, and nationalism, in a wide variety of settings from South Africa and Indonesia to the Crimea.
