Perspectives on Political Violence

The Perspectives on Political Violence series takes a broad approach to the subject by covering a wide range of activities from rebellion, terrorism, and civil wars to political repression, economic violence, and discriminatory deprivation, and more. Rather than impose a single definition of political violence, the general editors welcome contributions that either explain political violence itself or show how political violence explains other important phenomena. The books in this series will address these topics through creative theorizing and rigorous methods in political science, international affairs, and the social sciences more generally.
