Separatist Movements: A Global Reference

Separatist Movements: A Global Reference

  • Summary
  • Contents

Separatist Movements: A Global Reference uniquely profiles in detail 59 ongoing separatist movements across six major regions around the world, with attention given to not only prominent movements, such as the Tamils in Sri Lanka and the Sikhs in India, but also lesser-known peoples such as the Saami in the Arctic and the Inuit in Canada. Each of the movement essays includes a description of the people and a summary of their core aspirations––political, cultural, and economic; the movement’s history, stretching back decades and, in some cases, centuries; leadership––political parties, individuals, and militant groups; and current status. A selection of maps accompany the movement essays.
