This specially commissioned volume of original essays provides a unique view of conflict, territorial behaviour and reconciliation between groups - social, racial, religious and nationalist - within states, in both the developed and the developing worlds. It addresses such contemporary problem situations as are found in South Africa, Israel and Ireland, where solutions to intergroup conflict sometimes seem to be beyond reach, and also covers less volatile cases such as Basque separatism in Spain, the nationality issue in the Soviet Union, and the separation of the Australian aboriginal peoples. Showing the wide range of geographical solutions which have been adopted in attempts to limit conflict and foster stability, the book underlines the importance of a geographical perspective and provides a broad range of real-world experience in its carefully chosen case studies.
