Ethnonationalism and Political Systems in Europe: A State of Tension
In the last five years, fifteen new European states have been created on the basis of claims by previously little-known ethnonational groups. This book explains this development. It examines the cases of four European states (Bulgaria, the former Czechoslovakia, Belgium, and Finland) and focuses particularly on the impact of political systems on the development of ethnonational relations.
