Editorial Reviews

Review

"This well-written book adds another layer to the archetypal analysis of modern warfare, focusing on the influence of transnational insurgencies on conflict from a geopolitical perspective. Salehyan discusses the use that insurgents make of sanctuaries away from the battlefield and the complications this poses for intelligence gathering, counterinsurgency ops, and peacekeeping."—Soldier: Magazine of the British Army



"What happens when rebel organizations operate in more than one country? Idean Salehyan argues that although transnational rebels often benefit from interstate conflicts, they also can exacerbate or even create international disputes. Rebels without Borders significantly contributes to our understanding of the interactions between civil and interstate conflicts."—Comparative Political Studies



"Rebels without Borders is an interesting and important contribution to the study of civil war. Idean Salehyan's argument provides real insights into the causes and conduct of such conflicts. It is a model of twenty-first century political science—clearly written, a strong multimethod research design, ambitious and, ultimately, very persuasive."—Stephen Saideman, McGill University



"Rebels without Borders provides an innovative theoretical treatment of how transnational rebels affect the onset and duration of civil wars around the world. Idean Salehyan's rigorous application of quantitative and qualitative methods adds clarity to the literature on non-state actors and internal conflict. This book will be useful for courses on civil war, forced migration, and the causes of war."—Sarah Kenyon Lischer, Wake Forest University

Format: Hardcover
This book recently won the ENMISA 2010 Distinguished Book Award (ENMISA is a section of the International Studies Association) - and richly deserves it:

"...Idean Salehyan argues that one reason some conflicts are so much deadlier than others is that they border on states that contain violent conflicts of their own, serving as breeding grounds for cross-border rebel movements and refugee flows, weapons trafficking and foreign sanctuaries to which rebels can flee from pursuing government forces. He tests his argument using quantitative analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal conflict datasets, as well as a controlled case comparison of regional conflict nexuses in Central America and the Great Lakes region in Africa. He finds that communal violence is critically fuelled and perpetuated by conflict dynamics at the regional level, providing a compelling justification for regional solutions to domestic armed conflict." (From [...].)

I couldn't agree more: this is an excellent study that addresses spillover, "bad neighbors" and "bad neighborhoods" - in a fresh new way. It is well worth reading.
