Review

"This book is a broad, interdisciplinary synthesis that addresses the question of identity as a cultural and psychological concept. Korostelina is a creative and perceptive - as well as systematic - analyst of identity and ethnic, national, and international conflict. Her work is cutting edge for this topic so crucial in the post-cold war."

"Korostelina's Social Identity and Conflict is unique in several ways. First, it is a virtual encyclopedia of the literature on large group identity, with original contributions of her own. Also, it applies conflict analysis theory and provides concrete examplesof Korostelina's successful conflict resolution work with adversarial ethnic groups. I especially appreciate the way the author respectfully and effectively employs psycho-dynamic insights, a rare gift among social scientists."
