Understanding Collective Political Violence

Book Review

Holtermann, Helge (2013) Review of Understanding Collective Political Violence, in Journal of Peace Research 50(3): 428–429.

​​​The literature on intrastate armed conflict has moved forward in the last decade, in considerable part due to the​ dismantling of earlier grand theories. This edited volume follows up this process of challenging false assumptions in academic theories and popular conception.
