In Fixing Fractured Nations ten seasoned Asia-watchers assess the 'state of play' between governments and separatist-minded ethnic minorities in eight Asian countries at the end of the 21st century. Expert and freshly researched assessments cover major separatist challenges in the multiethnic states of China, India, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar/Burma and Papua New Guinea. The authors ask what motivates the separatists, how great a challenge they present to governments and how the governments have reacted to them. From the specific cases considered, the authors seek to discover where ethnic separatism in general is heading - towards peaceful resolution or greater violence and upheaval - in the globalizing and remarkably dynamic societies of Asia. The fate of ethnic separatism in these lands may alter the map of Asia and will inevitably help shape the political futures of Asia's populations.
