Russians are suppressing the Chechen; Ibo nationalism may yet tear Nigeria apart. With the end of the Cold War, any of the world's stateless peoples could be in tomorrow's headlines. This book provides an essential guide to the stateless nations suppressed or ignored during the Cold War. In more than 200 national surveys, the volume highlights the historical, political, social, economic, and diplomatic evolution of many of the currently emerging nations without states. Including nations from all continents―from the Chechen in Eastern Europe, to the Ibo in Africa, and the Quebeckers in North America―the book addresses the current nationalist resurgence by focusing on the most basic element of any nationalism, the nation itself.

The book provides the only source of concise information on stateless nations. Each entry includes the nation's name and alternative names, population statistics, information on major languages and religions, geographical information, independence declarations, information on the national flag, a brief sketch of the primary national group or groups, and a profile of the nation's history and national development to the present. A chronological appendix of declarations of independence helps to set the waves of nationalism in an historical context. A second appendix provides a geographic listing, by region and nation, of national organizations.

About the Author:

JAMES MINAHAN is an independent researcher and freelance writer living in Barcelona, Spain.

Review:

"In an era when new nations seem to spring up like mushrooms, this reference work fills a gap by providing libraries an easy way to access information on the many newly independent states and, perhaps more significantly, the national movements of aspirant states, which range from the familiar (Chechenia) to the obscure (Haudenosaunee, the Iroquois Confederation in Canada and the US)...this very useful handbook for today's changing world is recommended for public libraries and undergraduate collections."-Choice

..."an unprecedented wealth of information on the topic valuable not only to scholars but also to general readers....With accurate information unavailable elsewhere, it is a valuable reference tool."-MultiCultural Review

"This title is an alphabetically arranged survey of 210 little-known nations that are not states and are not recognized by major countries as being independent political entities...For ferreting out information about people normally neglected in world almanacs of handbooks of international data, this work is highly recommended."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"[A] fascinating reference source that provides little known information difficult to acquire elsewhere on contemporary nations that are all too easily overlooked...Highly recommended for history and political science reference collections."-Reference Book Review

"Nations Without States provides concise information on many of today's hot spots as well as places that may be in tomorrow's headlines. It conveniently brings together information published piecemeal in a variety of sources. In addition, it will benefit students enrolled in the growing number of history and political science courses devoted to the study of nationalism. This unique source will be a welcome addition to any academic reference collection."-RUSQ
