Alien Rule by Michael Hechter. This book argues that alien rule can become legitimate to the degree that it provides governance that is both effective and fair. Governance is effective to the degree that citizens have access to an expanding economy and an ample supply of culturally appropriate collective goods.

Governance is fair to the degree that rulers act according to the strictures of procedural justice.

Obvious examples include celebration of national holidays, display of emblems such as flags, sacred music, funerals, and religious ceremonies in sacred locations. They offer in-group versions of the past, including the origin and development of the group; they invoke past threats and conflicts and enemies; and they laud group survival. The subsequent section outlines core questions in the psychocultural analysis of ethnic conflict and specification of some limits to the cultural analysis of conflict; and the final section explains my use of the concepts of culture, identity, and ethnic conflict in this book. The analysis links collective psychological and social processes, placing identity issues and their cultural enactments at the center of ethnic conflict.

New Releases. Cultural Contestation in Ethnic Conflict. Description Ethnic conflict often focuses on culturally charged symbols and rituals that evoke strong emotions from all sides. Marc Howard Ross examines battles over diverse cultural expressions, including Islamic headscarves in France, parades in Northern Ireland, holy sites in Jerusalem and Confederate flags in the American South to propose a psychocultural framework for understanding ethnic conflict, as well as barriers to, and opportunities for, its mitigation.
His analysis explores how culture frames interests, structures demand-making and shapes how opponents can find common ground to produce constructive outcomes to long-term disputes. He focuses on participants' accounts of conflict to identify emotionally significant issues, and the power of cultural expressions to link individuals to larger identities and shape action. Ross shows that, contrary to popular belief, culture does not necessarily exacerbate conflict; rather, the constructed nature of psychocultural narratives can facilitate successful conflict mitigation through the development of more inclusive narratives and identities.
