The idea of secession has been around ever since there have been governments. It is an especially relevant topic today, as the emerging democracies in Eastern and Central Europe attempt to form new, stable political and economic units.

The idea has relevance wherever a substantial portion of the population is dissatisfied with its current political arrangement.
