Ethnic conflict contributed to the collapse of the Soviet system, but did not disappear with it. This volume expands our understanding of ethnic conflict in the context of imperial collapse and post-communist transition, with case studies that


--outline the contours of ethnic conflicts in Central Europe, the Balkans, the Baltic, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, the Caucasus, and Central Asia
--examine the ethnicization of social, economic, and political tensions both under state socialism and in the transition process
--identify factors that produce, exacerbate, or mitigate ethnic conflict
--consider the related problems of refugee and migrant populations.
