Serbs and Croats in the former Yugoslavia. Muslims and Christians in Nigeria. French- and English-speaking Canadians. Why do some fight? Why do others get along? What in these nations' pasts breeds strife? Or fosters harmony? No questions are more critical to today's world; no books answer them better than Ethnic Diversity within Nations. It starts with history. Nation-state by nation-state, each title exhaustively explores the ethnic past to understand the ethnic present of countries around the world-from the ancient origins of the original inhabitants to the story of immigrants, settlers, and conquerors to yesterday's headlines of conflict and cooperation. Can't we all just get along? As the books in the Ethnic Diversity within Nations series demonstrate, it's not always that simple.
