Abstract : The author explores the complexities of ethnicity and ethnic conflict in Europe, and assesses the substantial consequences for the United States. He examines the causes and sources of ethnic conflict, and then analyzes its complex nature--its spectrum, patterns, and special characteristics. The author next investigates the policymaking process, especially the difficulties confronting decisionmakers as they grapple with the unique nature of ethnic conflict. He then assesses the implications of ethnic conflict in Europe for the United States and the U.S. Army. Finally, he offers policy recommendations that might assist political and military leaders in developing U.S. policies for resolving ethnic conflict in Europe.
