This volume deals with the politics of ethnicity in East-Central Europe. The major part of the book focuses on the nature of identity and inter-ethnic relations in the Central European region of Silesia. Although Silesia is terra incognito to most of the English speaking world, for centuries it has been contested by German, Polish, Czech, Prussian and Austrian elites. These essays attempt to elucidate the issues revolved and counter stereotypical images of the region.
