      NEW TITLE FROM HURST
      Managing and Settling
      Ethnic Conflicts
      ULRICH SCHNECKENER
      STEFAN WOLFF editors


      '...a major contribution to understanding the management and settlement of
      ethnic conflicts. As a first comprehensive analysis this book is a
      veritable vademecum, which should be required reading not only for students
      and teachers...but for all those involved in managing and settling ethnic
      conflicts, particularly those in international organisations and the
      diplomatic service.' (Antony Alcock, University of Ulster)

      'Through a series of lucid case studies the contributors chart the ways in
      which institutional designers, political visionaries, interested
      neighbours, and international organisations have (and have not) worked
      together to defuse ethnic conflict. What emerges is the overarching power
      of elites. Vision, leadership, and political serendipity are not categories
      of analysis that social scientists usually employ, but as these essays
      show, they are crucial in figuring out why some places end up like South
      Tyrol and others like Rwanda.' (Charles King, Georgetown University,
      Washington, DC)

      '...a fine contribution to the literature on the management and settlement
      of ethnic conflicts [that] will be essential reading for academics and
      policymakers alike. Its coverage of both theoretical and practical aspects
      of its subject is highly impressive, as is the carefully considered choice
      of case studies to illustrate both success and failure in dealing with
      ethnic conflict.' (Adrian Guelke, Queen's University, Belfast)

      Ethnic conflicts devastate the lives of millions of people, destabilise
      governments and undermine the prospects of sustainable development and
      successful transitions to democracy. Moreover, the threats to global peace
      and stability that these conflicts pose often prompt the international
      community to engage in difficult and controversial peace-making and
      peace-keeping operations, with uncertain costs and outcomes. The
      contributors discuss the causes and consequences of ethnic conflict, and
      examine the successes and failures of conflict management in Europe, Asia
      and Africa.

      Ulrich Schneckener is a Fellow at the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik
      (German Institute for International and Security Affairs), Berlin.
      Stefan Wolff is Reader in Politics at the University of Bath, England.
