4.0 out of 5 stars Conflicts you never heard about, 1 May 2007
Dmitry Pozhidaev (Belgrade, Serbia) - See all my reviews
The book represents a concise but comprehensive description of the state-of-the-art in the field of ethnic conflict. Moreover, it is a well written and--despite the grave nature of the subject--entertaining book. It provides a summary of contemporary views on why and how ethnicity has become such a powerful mobilizing force that can plunge societies into years of civil war and suffering; why in some cases ethnic conflicts become so violent and in others may be resolved peacefully; and how, if at all, such conflicts may be managed and resolved. The book is quite extraordinary in its coverage of conflicts in various parts of the world. Of course, Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Kosovo, for example, are well-known examples of ethnic conflicts. But how much do we know about the events in Bougainville or in the Democratic Republic of Congo where at least three million people have died in war?

The book is highly recommendable for undergraduate students in political science/sociology and anybody who approaches the complex problem of ethnic conflict for the first time.
