Ethnic Violence and the Societal Security Dilemma explores how the phenomenon of ethnic violence can be understood as a form of security dilemma by shifting the focus of the concept away from its traditional concern with state sovereignty to that of identity instead. The book includes case studies on:
* ethnic violence between Serbs and Croats in the Krajina region of Croatia, August 1990
* ethnic violence between Hungarian and Romanians in the Transylvania region of Romania, March 1990.
