9780872894921: Ethnic Conflict: A Systematic Approach to Cases of Conflict

As ethnic groups clash, the international community faces the challenge of understanding the multiple causes of violence and formulating solutions that will bring about peace. Allowing for greater insight, Jesse and Williams bridge two sub-fields of political science in Ethnic Conflict - international relations and comparative politics. They systematically apply a "levels of analysis" framework, looking at the individual, domestic, and international contexts to better explore and understand its complexity. Five case study chapters apply the book's framework to disputes around the world and include coverage of Bosnia, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Northern Ireland, Sri Lanka, and Sudan. Never losing sight of their analytical framework, the authors provide richly detailed case studies that help students understand both the unique and shared causes of each conflict. Students will appreciate the book's logical presentation and excellent pedagogical features including detailed maps that show political, demographic, and cultural data.

Review:

Ethnic Conflict bridges the sub-fields of international relations and comparative politics. As someone who does research in this area and has taught the subject to undergraduates, I believe this approach will help students make sense of the overlapping factors that contribute to conflict. Another asset is that the authors apply the three levels of analysis (common to most IR scholarship) throughout the book, which is of value even when the book is used in comparative politics courses like political development or ethnic politics. Integrating the literature in IR and comparative politics by using the levels of analysis framework to analyze the causes of and solutions to ethnic conflicts is an innovative and impressive idea. --- Gigi Gokcek, Dominican University of California

Jesse and Williams offer a new synthetic treatment of the causes of ethnic conflict in the contemporary era. Integrating across the levels of analysis, they deftly meld individual, domestic, and international factors to probe the origins of conflict in five important cases-Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Israel/Palestine, Sri Lanka, and Sudan. Drawing on the best of recent scholarship, their compelling text will introduce students to the problems and complexities of this tragic, enduring, and still perplexing form of violence. --- David A. Lake, University of California, San Diego
