New European Diasporas

New European Diasporas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The European upheavals of the twentieth century have left in their wake many national minorities in eastern Europe. This book focuses on the politics of four of these European " diasporas" ---the Hungarians in Germany, the Russians in Eastern Europe, the Serbs following the breakup of Yugoslavia, and the Albanian plight in Kosovo and independent Macedonia.

Book News Annotation:

Five specialists in Eastern European politics have coordinated to explain the 20th century creation of new European diasporas, caused, not by the movement of peoples, but by the movement of boarders, leaving enclaves of ethnic minorities scattered among hostile neighbors. Chapters cover the Hungarian minorities in Central Europe, the Russian diaspora, the Serbian model of the dangers of disunification, and the challenges of the Albania question.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The European upheavals of the twentieth century have left in their wake many national minorities in eastern Europe. These new diasporas have been created by the movement not of people but of borders. The interaction between these minorities, the new states in which they are located, and the homeland states where their co-nationals predominate and from which they are separated, are the leading causes of large scale conflict in the wake of the collapse of communism. This book focuses on the politics of four of these European diasporas: the Hungarians in Germany, the Russians in Eastern Europe, the Serbs following the breakup of Yugoslavia, and the Albanian plight in Kosovo and independent Macedonia. Previously announced as National Minorities and Conflict in Eastern Europe.
