The object of this book is to look at the manner in which states attempt to cope with ethnic conflict through territorial approaches. This revised edition has new chapters covering Northern Ireland, South Africa and Yugoslavia.
The series publishes outstanding scholarship on federalism and decentralization, defined broadly, and is open to theoretical, empirical, philosophical, and historical works. The series includes two types of work: firstly, it features research monographs that are substantially based on primary research and make a significant original contribution to their field. Secondly, it contains works that address key issues of policy-relevant interest or summarise the research literature and provide a broad comparative coverage.
