|Ethnicity and Power in the Contemporary World (UNU, 1996, 298 pages)|
This volume is based on presentations made at the Conference on Conflict, Governance, and the Devolution of Power in Multi-ethnic States sponsored by the United Nations University, Tokyo, and the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow in March 1992, under the UNU's Ethnic Conflict and Governance Programme. We are also extremely grateful to the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology for hosting the conference and to the Institute's staff, in particular Senior Researcher Mara Ustinova and Marina Martinova, Scientific Secretary.
We would like to acknowledge the invaluable support of the UNU both in sponsoring the conference and through a lengthy editing process: particularly Dr Takeo Uchida, former Principal Academic Officer and in charge of the Ethnic Conflict and Governance Programme, for his guidance and great patience. To Rogie Kahlon and all the other staff at the UNU who helped with the production of the volume, we offer our sincere thanks. Stephanie Loomis ably assisted in the organization of the Moscow conference. We would also like to thank Susan Hoivik, David Israelson, Lucy Ackroyd, and David Lord for their work on the manuscript.
