9780754677529: The Ashgate Research Companion to Political Violence

Aimed at scholars, students and lay persons interested in peace and conflict studies, The Ashgate Research Companion to Political Violence is a comprehensive resource to understand the principal debates on political violence, a field which is becoming an increasingly important part of courses on peace and conflict. Organized into seven main sections, this volume deals with a wide range of issues covering the following important research areas: · Issues of definition and nomenclature and how contests over these relate to political violence. · Theoretical frameworks and methods for understanding and researching political violence. · Motivations and goals of those who use political violence. · The various forms of political violence. · Perspectives on countering political violence, by state and non-state actors. · Why and how political violence ends. · The aftermath of political violence. Contributions by leading scholars in the field provide an authoritative guide and source book on political violence for the scholar, the researcher and the informed general reader.

About the Author:

Professor Marie Breen-Smyth is Director of Research in the Department of Politics, University of Surrey, sits on the National Executive of the British International Studies Association and is a founding editor of the journal Critical Terrorism Studies. She is political advisor to the Campaign for All Injured, a cross sectoral group representing victims of political violence in Northern Ireland and founder of the Institute for Conflict Research.

Review:

'A balanced, tight-knit collection of essays from experts who write on the subject of political violence with an authority founded both on meticulous scholarship and, in many cases, direct experience. Under the editorial hand of Breen Smyth, political violence is never reduced to a mere academic concept but is instead scrutinised and explained as a real force with devastating ramifications.' Katy Hayward, Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland'If you want to choose one book to introduce you to different perspectives on political violence then this is the one. The editor has gathered scholars, practitioners and activists together to clarify the meaning of political violence. They consider its diverse genealogies and short, medium and long term impacts. These are then woven into a series of discussions about how to end different kinds of political violence and transform the relationships that brought them into existence. It is a must read book for anyone interested in how to conduct politics by peaceful rather than violent means.'Kevin P. Clements, National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago, New Zealand
