Within Western political philosophy, the rights of groups has often been neglected or addressed in only the narrowest fashion. Focusing solely on whether rights are exercised by individuals or groups misses what lies at the heart of ethnocultural conflict, leaving the crucial question unanswered: can the familiar system of common citizenship rights within liberal democracies sufficiently accommodate the legitimate interests of ethnic citizens? Specifically, how does membership in an ethnic group differ from other groups, such as professional, lifestyle, or advocacy groups? How important is ethnicity to personal identity and self-respect, and does accommodating these interests require more than standard citizenship rights? Crucially, what forms of ethnocultural accommodations are consistent with democratic equality, individual freedom, and political stability? Invoking numerous cases studies and addressing the issue of ethnicity from a range of perspectives, Ethnicity and Group Rights seeks to answer these questions.

"Like another poet-turned novelist, Denis Johnson, Svoboda turns a shrewd and lucid gaze on sights that make others turn away. Her diction is as precise as her territory is vast. What happens in Africa haunts her, it inhabits every word."-Amy Hempel, "I am still hungover from reading this book . . . Most writers cannot sustain their premises but Svoboda does and even strengthens hers . . . I am very excited about this book being put into the world." -Mark Richard, author of "Fishboy: A Ghost's Story" "A harrowing first novel...Svoboda's heroine is a white ethnographer slowly being starved to death by her lover as they trek across the Sudan. An obsessive monologue told in a measured whisper, desperate, chilling, seductive." -"Vogue",
