'Secessionist movements - often referred to by euphemisms such as "wars of national liberation", "remedial" responses to massive human rights violations, "unique" situations, or simply "dissolutions" of existing states - continue to disrupt the stability of the international order. This volume helps us to engage in an honest and necessary debate about ways of changing current borders, since demands for such changes will inevitably continue.' Hurst Hannum, Tufts University, USA 'From Scotland to Puntland, and from South Ossetia to South Sudan, secession raises fundamental questions for national states and the international community. This uniquely comprehensive survey of current arguments and pressing prospects by political scientists, international lawyers, historians and political philosophers marks a major advance in an increasingly sophisticated field and will be the starting-point for future research.' David Armitage, Harvard University, USA 'Given the secessionist tendencies unleashed by events like the demise of the Soviet Union, and breakup of Yugoslavia, secession literature is finally approaching the critical mass it has always deserved. This research companion is a most welcome addition to that accumulation. Its 45 individually authored subtopics combine to offer perhaps the best restatement of the subject in the world... Every library offering International Law or Relations material, every diplomatic establishment, and all academics in search of an authoritative text for advanced research would be wise to obtain this particular publication. It offers as complete a picture of secessionist settings and analysis as can be found between any two covers.' American Society of International Law Newsletter
