Summary
Addresses the pitfalls of border drawing in post-WWI Europe, arguing that at international and local levels, the 'temptation of violence' made national self-determination problematic, as local elites, administrations, and paramilitary leaders used ethnic notions of identity to mobilise popular support under a guise of international legitimacy
