Nation state by accident: the politicization of ethnic groups and the ethnicization of politics : Bosnia, India, Pakistan
In This Comparative Study Of Muslim Nation-Building And So-Called `Ethnic Conflicts` The Author Reveals Stunning Parallels Between The Collapse Of Tito`S Yugoslavia And The Ethno-National Separation Of Colonial India. In Both Cases Muslims Ended Up In A Nation State Of Their Own Without The Majority Of Them Wanting One. There Were No Mass Movements That Demanded A New `Homeland`, Which Contradicts Modernization-Theory Approaches Of Nationalism. Wieland Digs Below The Surface And Sketches Historic Develoments That Triggered The Construction And Instrumentalization Of `Ethnic Groups` In Both Cases. While Delivering Convincing Facts And New Perspectives, This Book Is A Passionate Appeal For The Deconstruction Of `Ethnic` Camps.
