The political economy of armed conflict, beyond greed and grievance, edited by Karen Ballentine and Jake Sherman

Globalization, suggest the authors of this collection, is creating new opportunities for armed factions to pursue their agendas in civil war. Within this context, they analyze the key dynamics of war economies and the challenges posed for conflict resolution and sustainable peace. --, Provided by publisher
