Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ethnic Conflict surveys theories of nationalism and ethnic conflict and describes how international actors both manage and exacerbate ethnic and sectarian divisions in a country. Discussing issues of international norms, security, and intervention, this text presents a model of ethnic conflict's internationalization and apply it to five original case studies. The innovative combination of theory and case study allows students to understand this global issue through in-depth examples and to critically examine ethnic conflict in the post-Cold War era.
