Editorial Reviews


"The book's findings are instructive.... The authors wisely advise that no single policy can be successful on its own and each country or conflict needs a unique combination of initiatives which address the specific conditions."--Public Administration and Development

By Alexandra Hopkins on March 5, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book presents stats on the relationships among poverty, education, and violent conflict. I've never seen this kind of information anywhere else. It's a revelation. Somewhat dry, but if you want to know the real source of war and violent conflicts among groups, this is the book to read. Not opinions, just the facts, ma'am (for those of you who watched the TV show "Dragnet" mid-20th Century). GREAT BOOK!
