The Republic of San Marino traces its origins back to Saint Marinus who established a settlement in AD 301. It has managed to maintain its independence since then in spite of a Papal attempt to annexe it in 1739. San Marino gave refuge to Giuseppe Garibaldi, and after Italian Reunification, San Marino's independence was assured. Its system of government, having two captains regent each serving for six months, and unable to stand again for five years, has ensured stability, although there was a political crisis in 1957 which resulted in the overthrow of the Communist government, the first elected Communist government in Western Europe. San Marino has long been a popular tourist destination, and is well-known around the world for its postage stamps.

From Chechnya to Bosnia, from the Kurds to the Palestinians, demands for separatism are fueling bitter and bloody conflicts. Yet, as this innovative study demonstrates, disputes between central governments and independence-minded minorities need not always escalate into violence and secession. Autonomy, by virtue of its essential adaptability, can offer a workable and peaceful compromise.Ruth Lapidoth first dissects the concept of autonomy, exploring its origins, examining the roles it can play, and distinguishing among its types. With scrupulous objectivity, she then presents more than a dozen richly documented case studies of autonomy in action. Drawn from four continents and detailing failures as well as successes, these studies underline autonomy s variety and versatility. Lapidoth s pragmatic approach and impeccable scholarship frame the issues and lay out the factors likely to foster successful outcomes."
