The culture of violence by Marcial Rubio Correa( )

21 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 2,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the relationship between culture and violence, an aspect of the phenomenon heretofore neglected but of growing interest and importance. Taking as their point of departure violence between groups within a state, or between the state and groups residing within it, the contributions seek to identify and analyse the possible links between culture and violence. Theoretical arguments are balanced with specific case-studies - Sri Lanka, Colombia, Bolivia, Uganda, Venezuela, the US, Brazil, and Chile. The discussions range from considerations of forms of violence, the root factors of violence, the use of ethnic myth in power and violence, and state terrorism, to gender and class factors, violence against children, drug-related violence, and human rights." "These essays will provide new insights and focus for understanding internal violence and its cultural connections to a broad audience of scholars, policy makers, and students of international politics and culture."--Jacket

Ethnicity and conflict in a post-communist world : the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and China by Peter King( Book )

28 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The post-Communist world has seen a dramatic revival of ethnicity and nationalism. The volume explores the contemporary sources, scope and intensity of nationality conflicts in the context of a disintegrating Soviet Empire. The authors address themselves to the resurgence of ethnicity and nationalism within the former Soviet imperium, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Bulgaria and China and examine the consequences of perestroika and glasnost. Central issues involve identity formation, the nature and implications of ethnic and internal conflicts and possible paths toward resolution

Between development and destruction : an enquiry into the causes of conflict in post-colonial states by Kumar Rupesinghe( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much has already been written about the effects of the changes of the Cold War on conflict. The ongoing disengagement of East and West from bipolar Cold-War politics has resulted in an unstable international political situation which is characterized by regional conflicts. Most analyses now concentrate on the consequences for Europe and the former communist Central and East European states. This book, however, explores the effects for what has been labelled the 'third world'. The contributors provide major theoretical analyses of the causes of conflict in developing countries. Four main factors are distinguished: the processes of state-formation and nation-building; the rise or return of ethnicity and nationalism; socio-economic factors; and the armaments - conflict nexus. The volume also provides in-depth regional analyses, as well as policy perspectives on the issue of conflict and development."--Jacket
Internal conflict and governance by Kumar Rupesinghe( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence, war and internal conflicts have assumed a new intensity with the decline of the Cold War. There are over 32 civil wars going on today. Our world may well witness over 100 million refugees in the year 2000 as a direct result of internal wars. This volume consists of case studies and theory-oriented papers dealing with Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Middle East. Taken together, they spell out implications of wide general interest, providing a comparative basis for a systematic approach to conflict transformation

Early warning and conflict resolution by Kumar Rupesinghe( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can we prevent violent conflicts and wars in the future? This volume reflects the growing interest in developing an early warning capability within the research community, in international humanitarian and aid agencies and in international institutions such as the United Nations. By 'early warning' we mean information that can provide a timely alert to potential conflicts. Key issues covered in the book include: the manner in which the concept of early warning is translated into methodological approaches; identification of root causes for disputes and conflict situations; selection of indicators; determination of methodologies; use of new technologies; possible development of networking; search for conditions for the settlement of conflicts. The processing, analysis and evaluation of information is systematically approached in the collection. The reader will find case-studies and practical approaches as well as theory-oriented papers. Authors have been encouraged to take a real-life approach rather than pursue a lofty and inaccessible theoretical discourse of little consequence
