The European upheavals of the twentieth century have left in their wake many national minorities in eastern Europe. These “new diasporas” have been created by the movement not of people but of borders. The interaction between these minorities, the new states in which they are located, and the homeland states where their co-nationals predominate and from which they are separated, are the leading causes of large scale conflict in the wake of the collapse of communism. This book focuses on the politics of four of these European diasporas: the Hungarians in Germany, the Russians in Eastern Europe, the Serbs following the breakup of Yugoslavia, and the Albanian plight in Kosovo and independent Macedonia.Previously announced as National Minorities and Conflict in Eastern Europe.
