Pandaemonium: Ethnicity in International Politics
Pandaemonium: Ethnicity in International Politics
By Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Oxford University Press, 1993, 200 pp.

The senior U.S. senator from New York enlarges on a topic that has engaged him for many decades: the power of ethnicity and its resulting strife. He quotes his early apprehensions that ethnic conflicts might bring about the collapse of the Soviet Union. The book--an enlarged lecture--is a pleasing hodgepodge of ideas and often banal facts, witty and literate.
