Violent internal conflicts are the predominant form of warfare in the world today, and there is an urgent need to understand their causes and find ways for their prevention or resolution. The 15 essays collected here present a variety of perspectives, conceptions, arguments, and conclusions regarding ethnicity, power, and conflict in the contemporary world. Scholars from Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America explore conflicts and conflict resolution approaches in regions of the former Soviet Union, the Horn of Africa, India, the Basque region of Spain, the former Yugoslavia, Northern Ireland, and the United States.
The cases that are presented here reveal the complexity of conflict and the variety of factors and motives underlying the resurgence of ethnicity and the shifting power relationships of the post-Cold War world, and they demonstrate that the solutions will at times necessarily be complex and various.
Readers of this timely study will discover a wide geographic and experiential range and a rich and lively debate among the essays on one of the most urgent dilemmas of the contemporary world.
