The Ties that Divide: Ethnic Politics, Foreign Policy, and International Conflict

Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 2001 - History - 276 pages

While scholars and policymakers have devoted considerable attention to the issue of ethnic conflicts, the question of why states take sides in other countries' ethnic conflicts has largely been ignored. Saideman addresses this issue, arguing that domestic political competition compels countries to support the side of an ethnic conflict with which constituents share ethnicities.
