"Canadian specialists will learn much from this volume but it also contains much to interest students of ethnicity, nationalism and constitutionalism in general.
This series draws attention to some of the most exciting issues in current world political debate: nation-building, autonomy and self-determination; ethnic identity, conflict and accommodation; pluralism, multiculturalism and the politics of language; ethnonationalism, irredentism and separatism; and immigration, naturalization and citizenship. The series includes monographs as well as edited volumes, and through the use of case studies and comparative analyses will bring together some of the best work to be found in the field.
