The existing traditions of inquiry into ethnic conflict can be classified into four categories: essentialism, instrumentalism, constructivism, and institutionalism. All four traditions have a distinguished lineage, but none can really account for the worldwide spread of ethnic violence. We need to move from the local to the macro or global. This book, using methodology from sociology, history, and politics, will present the complexities of ethnic conflict in terms of linguistics, religion, territory, and tribes in various regions. These brilliant essays look at some of the most conflicted sites in the world, where ethnic violence has been created and played out: Burma, Indonesia, Rwanda, Burundi, Nigeria, the Sudan, Mexico, and Guyana. Divided into two parts, Perspectives on Contemporary Ethnic Conflict is a rich text for scholars of conflict studies, focusing on the sources and dynamics of ethnic violence and providing descriptions of ethnic conflict across the globe.
