About the author
Susan Olzak is Professor of Sociology at Stanford University. She is the author of The Dynamics of Ethnic Competition and Conflict (Stanford University Press, 1992).
"Susan Olzak promises a great deal in this book and delivers even more. She makes strong hypothetical claims derived from rich theoretical arguments, develops elegant empirical tests of them, and quite cautiously fashions conclusions out of the pattern of results. The book provides a remarkably coherent model for studying ethnic conflict. . . . With this superb monograph Susan Olzak establishes a niche for herself among the best scholars of ethnic conflict and collective action."
