About this book

How does a multi-ethnic society resolve the contentious issue of resource allocation without damaging the state? This study examines inequality in terms of distributive justice, adaptation of political institutions, the role of symbols of recognition in representation and conflict management in power sharing, resource allocation and public policy.

Reviews

'an important resource for anyone trying to understand the complexities of multi-ethnic societies and the manner in which they manage conflict and engage with questions of distribution - perhaps the most important question facing post-colonial societies.' - Pal Ahluwalia, Professor of Ethnic Studies, University of California, San Diego, USA and Research Chair and Professor of Post-Colonial Studies, University of South Australia.
