The New European Diasporas: National Minorities and Conflict in Eastern Europe


"The European upheavals of the twentieth century have left in their wake a series of national minorities in Eastern Europe. These "new diasporas" have been created by the movement not of people but of borders. The interaction of these minorities, the new states in which they are located, and the homeland states where their co-nationals predominate and from which they have been separated is the leading cause of large-scale conflict in the wake of communism's collapse. The politics of four of these European "national triads" - Hungarians, Russians, Serbs, and Albanians - is the focus of this important book."
