Editorial Reviews

Review

The issue of the relationship between economics and conflicts needs much more examination than it has received to date. This book will make a very important contribution to the debate and as such is quite exciting. The authors have been very serious in their work and yet are able to introduce the reader to a complex analysis of complex conflicts in very engaging ways. The book will be welcomed by scholars and practitioners focused on managing conflict, and by area studies specialists of the countries examined in the case studies.

(Pamela Aall, U.S. Institute for Peace)

Recommended.

(Choice)

Comprehensive and well-executed examination of the multiple dimensions―political, economic, ideational and historical―that come together to spark intra-state violence and impede its revolution.

(Lee J. M. Seymour Political Studies Review)

An important book... I can strongly recommend it.

(Ron Smith Economics of Peace and Security Journal)

The book maintains a high level of scholarship, addressing the audiences from virtually every field that attempts to understand human social dynamics.

(Muhammad M. Haque Journal of Third World Studies)

The anthology contributes to our understanding of why some violent internal conflicts are so enduring.

(Walter W. Hill International Journal on World Peace)

Format: Hardcover
Conflict prevention titles usually focus on ideology and politics, but a more comprehensive overview is taken in Rethinking The Economics Of War: The Intersection Of Need, Creed, And Greed. It crosses disciplines in considering all the different influences on war decisions, it goes beyond economic consideration to discuss cultural identity, grievances, and income gains from war, and it provides scholarly, college-level essays which pinpoint greed and discrimination as primary causes of war within states. Essential for understanding some of the real origins of war.
