This book examines the causes and consequences of ethnic cleansing in the twentieth century Balkans. The analysis offers a top-down interpretation of the expulsion of ethno-national minorities as a means of state-building and questions the argument for forced homogenization as a conflict resolution strategy. In providing a thorough and consistent analysis of large-scale episodes of ethinic cleansing, the book fills an important gap in existing conflict and peace studies literature.show more

Review quote

Despite its scholarly analysis, The Politics of Ethnic Cleansing is written in an easily accessible style and should appeal to anyone with an interest in the Balkans or conflict studies in general. This book is well researched and well written throughout, and fills an important gap in literature. This ambitious book deserves to be widely read. International Affairs A major book-learned but never pedantic. The author provides a thought-provoking, humane and incisive guide to one of the terrible practices of modern politics. She has a rare, imaginative grasp of an unimaginably harsh period of history-our own. -- Christopher Coker, London School of Economicsshow more
