Hardcover. 312 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.In Religion, Civilization, and Civil War author Jonathan Fox carves out a new space of research and interrogation in conflict studies. As a preeminent observer of religious trends on domestic conflicts, Fox utilizes new statistical analysis in the Minorities at Risk (MAR) dataset - which tracks several hundred politically active ethnic groups across the globe, to examine the impact of religion and religious practice on rebellion, protest, discrimination, and international intervention. Fox also employs the State Failure (SF) dataset, which tracks internal wars and failed governances. Fox expertly uses this information to analyze ethnic wars, mass killings, and civil wars between 1948 and 2001. Covering over five decades, this study provides the most comprehensive and detailed empirical analysis of the impact of religion and civilization on domestic conflict to date and will become a critical resource for both international relations and political science scholars. Like his first book, Ethnoreligious Conflict in the Late 20th Century: A General Theory, which was touted as closing gaps in the concept of ethnoreligious conflict, Religion, Civilization, and Civil War provides the data to substantiate, expand, and transform the way scholars understand global conflict since World War Two.
