Since 1989 and the downfall of the communist regimes of Eastern Europe, there has been a resurgence of nationalism and ethnic conflict. Tumultuous developments have taken place in the former Yugoslavia and ex-USSR. Ethnic conflict has continued, unabated, in South Africa, Northern Ireland and in other countries such as Canada and Malaysia. In this timely book John McGarry and Brendan O'Leary provide a substantial introduction which classifies and judges the morality, feasibility and consequences of all the major methods of ethnic conflict regulation open to governments. The book also contains a comprehensive set of case studies written by leading authorities on dealing with such conflicts in Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas.
