Roots of civil war: tick 'all of the above

Hanlon, Joseph (2005). Roots of civil war: tick 'all of the above. In: Yanacopulos, Helen and Hanlon, Joseph eds. Civil War, Civil Peace. Oxford, UK: James Currey, pp. 72–94.



About the book: After a peace agreement, half of all civil wars start again. When a cease fire or peace deal is agreed, aid workers, military personnel, diplomats and others pour in, but what can they do to reduce the chances of a return to war? A growing number of academic courses aimed at practitioners and policy-makers in Britain and elsewhere attempt to answer this question but until now there has been no book to accompany them. In part, a handbook on how to understand each war as a unique phenomenon, it develops a set of war analysis tools, challenging commonly held assumptions about the nature of gender, ethnicity and greed.
