9780415369107: Understanding Conflict and Violence: Theoretical and Interdisciplinary Approaches

This book examines and interprets a wide range of approaches to the causes of violence and conflict.

The causes of violence and conflict are often left untheorized, or they are discussed as an existent problem assumed to be an inevitable part of human interaction. Adopting an accessible approach, this volume presents readers with a clear understanding of the causes of violence and conflict by highlighting their evolutionary roots and illustrating them with in-depth case studies and examples.

Tim Jacoby addresses the fragmented nature of the literature on conflict theory by drawing upon a wide range of disciplinary traditions, seeking to reflect the fact that international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology all share a long-standing interest in the study of conflict and violence and that common concerns make interdisciplinary stimulating and productive.

Understanding Conflict & Violence will be of interest to students and scholars across the disciplines of international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology.

Review:

'Hugely informative and stimulating, Tim Jacoby's writing combines an impressive coverage of diverse theoretical perspectives with a real sense of relevance to current predicaments - a considerable achievement.' 
Paul Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies, Bradford University, UK

'This is a superb survey, clearly written and structured, and with an unusual range and historical depth of coverage. This book will become a standard, highly useful resource for all those with an interest in negotiating their way through complex debates and problems in understanding violence and conflict.' 
Christopher Cramer, Professor of the Political Economy of Development, SOAS, UK

'The large body of different methodological and theoretical approaches that Jacoby introduces in his volume is remarkable...The book serves as a valuable contribution to development of conflict analysis method and theory.'
Naima Mouhleb, Security Dialogue
