Summary: How is ethnicity viewed by scholars of different academic disciplines? Can its emergences be compared in various regions of the world?

Its scope is multidisciplinary and spans across the globe. It is a suitable resource for teaching material. With its short contributions, it conveys central points of how to understand and analyze ethnicity as a political resource.
