Description

This landmark study in the field of comparative politics is being celebrated for its return to print as the newest addition to the “Longman Classics in Political Science” series.  Politics in Plural Societies presents a model of political competition in multi-ethnic societies and explains why plural societies, and the struggle for power within them, often erupt with inter-ethnic hostility.

Distinguished scholars Alvin Rabushka and Kenneth Shepsle collaborate again in this reissuing of their classic work to demonstrate — in a new epilogue — the persistence of the arguments and evidence first offered in the book.  They apply this thesis to the multi-ethnic politics of countries that are of great interest today: Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Yugoslavia, and more.
