Collective Political Violence is a concise, but thorough, interdisciplinary analysis of the many competing concepts, theories and explanations of political conflict, including revolutions, civil wars, genocide, and terrorism. To further his examination of each type of conflict, Earl Conteh-Morgan presents case studies, from the Rwandan genocide to the United States civil rights movement. Along the way, he illuminates new debates concerning terrorism, peacekeeping, and environmental security.
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.

Earl Conteh-Morgan is Professor of International Studies at the University of South Florida.Review:
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 Maryland
