This specially commissioned volume of original essays, first published in 1990, provides a unique view of conflict, territorial behaviour and reconciliation between groups – social, racial, religious and nationalist – within states in both the developed and the developing worlds. The volume as a whole shows the wide range of geographical solutions which have been adopted in attempts to limit conflict and foster stability. This title underlines the importance of a geographical perspective on intergroup conflict and reconciliation, and provides a broad range of real-world experience in carefully chosen case studies. Shared Space: Divided Space will be of interest students of the social sciences as well as to general readers, who will find this title to be accessible and authoritative.
