Ethnicity and Territory in the Former Soviet Union: regions in conflict

James Hughes and Gwendolyn Sasse (eds)
Frank Cass & Co, Regional & Federal Studies (November 2001)

The collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991 removed a decades-long system of successful control of national, ethnic and regional conflict potential. The result was the eruption of numerous conflicts over state-building, some of which degenerated into violence and some of which were managed or prevented by strategies of accommodation. 

This book analyses the common trends and differences in the responses of the new post-Soviet states to the problems of state-building in ethnically and regionally divided societies, focusing on the impact of ethnic and regional conflicts on post-communist transition and institutional development.
