Encyclopedia of Modern Ethnic Conflicts

Greenwood Press | ISBN:0313313814 | 2003 | PDF | 478 p. | 1 MB

“The Encyclopedia of Modern Ethnic Conflicts consists of 38 articles focusing on specific ethnic conflicts around the world. The articles are substantial, covering the historical background of the conflict's characteristics, management, and significance and including a chronology, cross-references, and a bibliography. Examples include "Central Europe: The Romany, a Stateless Minority in a World of States"; "United Kingdom: Scotland and Scottish Nationalism"; and "Western Sahara: Ethnic Conflict and the Twentieth Century's Last Colonial War." Arrangement is alphabetical based on country or geographic area. An appendix lists the volume's contents by region, and an extensive index gives good access.”

Averaging about 10 pages in length, the articles provide excellent, in-depth treatment of each conflict. The limited number of articles means that the coverage is highly selective, but the editor did a good job of choosing conflicts that are prominent in the news and likely to be of interest to library patrons. Selective detailed coverage combined with a global reach set this source apart from related reference tools. Other sources with a global scope, such as Ethnic Relations: A Cross-Cultural Encyclopedia (2d ed., ABC-CLIO, 1998), have shorter entries on a wider variety of topics. Sources such as Racial and Ethnic Relations in America (Salem, 2000) focus on particular geographic areas. Even for collections with other sources on ethnic conflicts, Encyclopedia of Modern Ethnic Conflicts will be a useful addition and is recommended for academic and public libraries.
