Understanding Conflict and Violence Summary

Understanding Conflict and Violence: Theoretical and Interdisciplinary Approaches by Tim Jacoby (University of Manchester, UK)

This book examines and interprets a wide range of approaches to the causes of violence and conflict.

The causes of violence and conflict are often left untheorized, or they are discussed as an existent problem assumed to be an inevitable part of human interaction. Adopting an accessible approach, this volume presents readers with a clear understanding of the causes of violence and conflict by highlighting their evolutionary roots and illustrating them with in-depth case studies and examples.

Tim Jacoby addresses the fragmented nature of the literature on conflict theory by drawing upon a wide range of disciplinary traditions, seeking to reflect the fact that international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology all share a long-standing interest in the study of conflict and violence and that common concerns make interdisciplinary stimulating and productive.

Understanding Conflict & Violence will be of interest to students and scholars across the disciplines of international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology.

'The large body of different methodological and theoretical approaches that Jacoby introduces in his volume is remarkable...The book serves as a valuable contribution to development of conflict analysis method and theory.'
