Although ethnicity is often considered purely at the domestic level, many ethnic groups have segments or close links to groups in other countries. Butcher provides a very useful summary of cross-border links. This volume will be an invaluable reference to all scholars interested in transnational ethnic networks and relations.— Kristian Skrede Gleditsch, Regius Professor of Political Science, University of Essex
Kinship ties across borders have played a key role in mobilization for civil war. Yet, until now we have lacked systematic data on a broad set of groups that cross borders. Moreover, analysis of such relationships often suffers from an over aggregation of “groups” based on analyst perceptions. This book offers an important corrective, providing nuanced data on transborder groups around the world. Professor Butcher has carefully documented the distribution of ethnic and religious groups across borders of contiguous countries.
