About the Author

Thomas Musgrave is a lecturer in law at the University of Wollongong in Australia. He has practised as a barrister in Canada.


`The book's great strength from the point of view of non-lawyers lies in the clarity with which it unfolds, expounds and analyses the arguments that have been used by international bodies, states and ethnic movements to justify particular courses of action and inaction. The complex inter-relationships between self-determination and minority protection, which lie at the core of the book, are especially well handled the book's realism will appear to scholars
whose firm disciplinary grounding in realpolitik may prejudice them against legally-based approaches.'
Immigrants and Minorities
`offers a fresh approach to the origins of self-determination ... offers clearly argued positions about contentious issues ... very well written and ... accessible to most readers. It should be read by all those involved in any way in matters that raise issues of self-determination and minority rights.'
Lawyers Weekly
`immensely helpful in providing a proper perspective.'
A.G. Noorani, Frontline, Aug 00.
