review description
Whether ethnicity stems from certain intrinsic group characteristics or whether it is a definition conferred upon various groups because of their political, social, and economic environment has been a fundamental debate within the field of ethnic studies. Most students of ethnic studies would agree that ethnicity today embraces both factors, and more, that it is the result of the interactions between both sets of influences. How these factors interact in the political sphere is the core of Rothschild's ambitious new book.
