(p.1) Introduction
The Lands Between

Alexander V. Prusin (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The Introduction summarizes the subject of the book: the history of the borderlands that once constituted the frontiers between the Austro-Hungarian, German, and Russian empires. The patterns of conflicts and violence in the borderlands suggest a particular case study worthy of examination. This book aims to examine the causes and mechanisms of conflict in the borderlands and partially subscribes to the notion that socio-economic cleavages and ethnic rivalries—most common patterns of the East European landscape—were at its root. Finally, the terms ‘borderlands’ and ‘nationalism’ are defined.

Keywords:   borderlands, conflict, ethnic rivalries, nationalism
