Description - Theories of Secession by Percy B. Lehning
Theories of Secession presents a systematic analysis of the recent rise of secessionist movements in global politics. Bringing together some of the most respected scholars in their field, this study locates the right to secede in the context of contemporary political theory. The chapters deal with problems of nationalism and federalism, special rights to secede, conditions of ethnic and cultural pluralism and asks if constitutions should include a right to secede. The contributors also consider historical and contemporary examples of secession, raising fundamental questions about the interaction between the politics of identity, of nationalism, of democracy and key issues in secession.
