Secession As An International Phenomenon: From America's Civil War to Contemporary Separatist Movements (Book)
Title: Secession As An International Phenomenon: From America's Civil War to Contemporary Separatist Movements
Author: Don H. Doyle
Editor: Don H. Doyle
Abstract: About half of today's nation-states originated as some kind of breakaway state. The end of the Cold war witnessed a resurgence of separatist activity affecting nearly every part of the globe. As the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War approaches, this collection of essays allows us to view within a broader international context one of modern history's bloodiest conflicts over secession. the contributors to the volume consider a wide range of topics related to secession, separatism, and the nationalist passions that inflame such conflicts. The first section of the book examines ethical and moral dimensions of secession, while subsequent sections look at the American Civil War, conflicts in the Gulf of Mexico, European separatism, and conflicts in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
