Ethnic Diversity Within Nations
Serbs and Croats in the former Yugoslavia. Muslims and Christians in Nigeria. French- and English-speaking Canadians. Why do some fight? Why do others get along? What in these nations' pasts breeds strife or fosters harmony? No questions are more critical to today's world; no books answer them better than Ethnic Diversity Within Nations.
Exploring the past, making sense of the present—this series examines the ethnic complexity of modern nation-states around the world.
Can't we all just get along? As the books in the Ethnic Diversity Within Nations series demonstrate, it's not always that simple. It starts with history.
