    Violent internal conflicts are the predominant form of warfare in the world today, and there is an urgent need to understand their causes and find ways for their prevention or resolution. The 15 essays collected here resent a variety of perspectives, conceptions, arguments, and conclusions regarding ethnicity, power, and conflict in the contemporary world. Scholars from Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America explore conflicts and conflict resolution approaches in regions of the former Soviet Union, the Horn of Africa, India, the Basque region of Spain, the former Yugoslavia, Northern Ireland, and the United States.
