Summary
"Why were ethnic and national conflicts such a pronounced feature of the situation in many of the former communist countries after 1989? Did they have deep roots? Are they getting more severe, or are there signs that this is a transitional stage, now successfully overcome?" "This book tries to answer some of these questions. After a brief examination of the major theories of ethnicity and the way they have been applied in the communist and post-communist situation, the author moves on to examine the past history of the area - its relation to nationalism and the nation-state are presented carefully case by case. The impact of the period of communist rule is then covered. There follow two chapters giving an analytical treatment of all the major disputes of the 1990s. Full justice is done to complex and rarely examined present-day situations in countries such as Moldova, Georgia and Tajikistan, though the more widely studied conflicts in the former Yugoslavia also receive appropriate consideration."--Jacket
