  David Duke's Official Website: Irredentism: An Inevitable Tendency of Ethnic Nationalism
Irredentism, as it has been formulated and pursued since the 19th Century, seems to be strongly connected with the aggressive aspects of nationalism.
Irredentism is a 'natural' characteristic and inherent predisposition of ethnic nationalism and the ethnic dimension of mixed nationalism.
Irredentism is a component of the 'telos' of ethnic nationalism, and the only way to change the telos of this type of nationalism is by changing the nationalism itself.

 Irredentism: Ethnic Conflict and International Politics // Abstract
The term irredentism is derived from the Italian word irredenta (unredeemed) and originally referred to the political movement during the mid-1800s to early 1900s to detach Italian speakers from Swiss and Austro-Hungarian control and bring them into the newly formed Italian state.
Irredentism is similar to secession but different enough to treat it as a separate concept.
Thus, the two distinguishing features of irredentism are: a pre-existing state and territorial claims upon another state based upon ethnic affinity.

 irredentism - HighBeam Encyclopedia
irredentism, originally, the Italian nationalist movement for the annexation to Italy of territories— Italia irredenta [unredeemed Italy]—inhabited by an Italian majority but retained by Austria after 1866.
The term irredentism has, by extension, been applied to nationalist agitation in other countries, based on historical, ethnic, and geographical reasons, for the incorporation of territories under foreign rule.
Irredentism is thus closely connected with nationalism and with minority problems.

 Irredentism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Irredentism is an international relations term that involves advocating annexation of territories administered by another state on the grounds of common ethnicity and/or prior historical possession, actual or alleged.
However, some countries are the subject of potential irredentism from birth.
Not all potential irredentas are involved in actual irredentism.

But irredentism and separatism, in contrast, have an irresistible quality to them, an association with some of the finest impulses in mankind, such as the desire to be independent and to resist oppression.
Irredentism and separatism are found in many industrialized states, such as Canada (the province of Quebec), Spain (the Basque region) and Great Britain (Northern Ireland), and in many other parts of the world (such as Sri Lanka).
As was pointed out above, irredentism and separatism are strong, and the separatist impulse may be even more common than separatist movements, considering the high costs associated not only with being an independent small group, but also with the process of establishing a separate state, which is often long and bloody.

 SEMP - What is Irredentism?
Irredentism is “attempts by existing states to annex territories of another state that their co-nationals inhabit.”* For example, Syria is profoundly irredentist, meaning that it wants back Jordan, Lebanon, and Palestine, which, with Syria, comprised historic Syria (before 1917).
Domestic nationalism is the degree to which “the state advocates and pursues the premise that the political and the national unit should be congruent.
Thus, Ambrosio argues, the level of irredentism is a combination of the irredentist’s state’s nationalism and countervailing intervention by the international community.

 Background on the Balkans   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The current ethnic tensions in the region are driven by the twin forces of nationalism and irredentism.
Nationalism, the desire of an ethnic group to have a nation of their own both combines and competes with irredentism, which is the concept that areas settled by an ethnic group should be ruled by that ethnic group.
By the end of all of this history, the forces of nationalism and irredentism had permanently marked the face of the Balkans.

 Ethics in Society - Lectures - Tanner
This is irredentism, and Margalit finds it to be particularly troublesome in negotiation and compromise.
Irredentism both threatens negotiation (who, after all, could take concessions seriously from a partner who openly claims to want to recover the lost goods at the first opportunity?) and, more importantly, destabilizes peace.
In fact, Margalit notes, we should be wary of irredentism even when the irredentist goals are in accordance with, and pursuit of, justice.

 Victor Roudometof - Nationalism and Identity Politics in the Balkans: Greece and the Macedonian Question - Journal of ...
It should thus be noted that the issues of minority rights and irredentism are closely intertwined, and that the confusion between the two is not accidental (Roudometof 1996).
This is generally considered to be the first articulation of Greek irredentism, more widely known as the "Great Idea." Koletis's aim was to safeguard the public sector positions of the "non-indigenous" Greeks--that is, those not born in the kingdom (Dimakis 1991).
Historical claims and nationalist claims were intertwined during the nineteenth century; Greek irredentism is a prime example of the close relationship between historical narrative and nationalist aspirations.

Irredentism and secessionism have been important causes of international conflict in the 1990's, yet few have considered why ethnic groups desire union with kin elsewhere or want to become independent.
Our findings support elements of the conventional wisdom--ethnic kin influence irredentism and that violence between a group and its host state increases secessionism.

 Revanchism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revanchism is intextricably linked with irredentism, the conception that a part of the cultural and ethnic nation remains "unredeemed" outside the borders of its appropriate nation-state.
Revanchist politics often rely on the identification of a nation with a nation-state, often mobilizing deep-rooted sentiments of ethnic nationalism, claiming territories outside of the state where members of the ethnic group live, while using heavy-handed nationalism to mobilise support for these aims.
Such sentiment, known as irredentism, called for the incorporation of Alsace-Lorraine, the Polish Corridor and the Sudentenland (see Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia).

 The Hindu : Afghanistan - a cauldron
With what is being widely perceived by most Pashtuns now as Pakistan's perfidy, Pashtun irredentism could rear its head again.
In point of fact, it is this spectre of Pashtun irredentism that has propelled Pakistan all along from the earliest days to want to influence if not control events in Afghanistan.
In short, Pakistan's direct and blatant creation of the Taliban was nothing but its simple-minded soldiery's attempt to, first, seek to permanently neutralise any danger of Pashtun irredentism; and second, to obviate any prospect of an Indo-Afghan pincer against Pakistan.

And when we rouse ourselves to reassert our exclusive sovereignty, as the French state tried to do in the no-go zones of its immigrant suburbs, the pushback might well be as intense.
Maria Hsia Chang, Professor of Political Science, University of Nevada Reno, reinforces Krikorian's argument that irredentism is an established political goal:
The territory lost in the 19th century by...Mexico...seems to be restoring itself through a humble people who go on settling various zones that once were ours on the old maps.

Brigands with a cause: Brigandage and Irredentism in Modern Greece, 1821-1912 by John S. Koliopoulos (New York: Oxford University Press, 1987), $69.
Articulately written, meticulously documented, and refreshingly impartial, this book scrutinizes the often overlooked role of brigandage and irredentism in Greece since the War of Independence, revealing the intrinsic bond between the two and their influence on Greek politics and identity.
For our readers, this book is most poignant in its examination of the fatal blow these government-supported "rebels" delivered to the "Vlah" population.

In this view, the lack of such Palestinian self-determination drives the conflicts and the realization of such self-determination is the only formula that will lead to Middle Eastern harmony.
But this outlook ignores the fact that for a century nearly every form of aggression, irredentism, and xenophobia has wrapped itself in the banner of self-determination.
Twentieth-century aggressors feel a need to present themselves as defenders of the downtrodden and friends of those souls seeking self-determination.
