Collective Political Violence: An Introduction to the Theories and Cases of Violent Conflicts
Written in a knowledgeable, yet accessible, manner, Collective Political Violence treats the issue of political violence with an impressively wide geographic range, and successfully straddles the ideological divide.
"There is to my knowledge no single work that provides such a comprehensive overview of theorizing about collective violence in the social sciences, including anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, and political science.This work's scope, and Professor Conteh-Morgan's knowledge of the intellectual history of the subject is astounding. It renders the theoretical work done on this subject in all of the social sciences accessible across disciplinary boundaries--which I hope will inspire many productive collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. This is a much-needed and overdue introduction to the most important social and political question of our time - collective violence and its mitigation within and across the jurisdictional boundaries of states."-Franke Wilmer, Montana State University "This is a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the range of social scientific theories that explain collective violence at all levels. It is useful for any student of comparative politics, international relations, or peace and justice studies."-Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College "The great virtue of Earl Conteh-Morgan's book is its breadth. Few if any other texts suitable for undergraduates survey general explanations of political violence along with analyzing such topics as international war, revolutions, ethnic conflict, genocide, terrorism, and peacekeeping...."Collective Political Violence should be seriously considered for adoption in undergraduate survey courses on conflict and global issues."-Ted Robert Gurr, University of Marylandshow more
