In this comparative study of Muslim nation-building and so-called `ethnic conflicts` the author reveals stunning parallels between the collapse of Tito`s Yugoslavia and the ethno-national separation of colonial India. In both cases Muslims ended up in a nation state of their own without the majority of them wanting one. There were no mass movements that demanded a new `homeland`, which contradicts modernization-theory approaches of nationalism. Wieland digs below the surface and sketches historic develoments that triggered the construction and instrumentalization of `ethnic groups` in both cases. While delivering convincing facts and new perspectives, this book is a passionate appeal for the deconstruction of `ethnic` camps.
