Secession: The Legitimacy of Self-Determination

By Lee C. Buchheit
Yale University Press, 1978
260 pp. $17.50

The right of groups to self-determination often conflicts with the norm of the territorial integrity of states, especially in developing countries. This well-written essay in international law carefully moves between theory and case study in analyzing recent conflicts such as those in the Congo, Biafra, the African Horn and Bangladesh.
