The publication of the game-changing edited book Ethnic Groups and Boundaries took place fifty years ago. A new book edited by Thomas Hylland Eriksen and Marek Jakoubek assesses its impact, its continued importance, its shortcomings and the way in which it changed our thinking about ethnic relations. The editors will speak about the book, and are joined by Lenka Budilova Jakoubova, also a contributor to the book.
