Introduction to Conflict Studies:

Empirical, Theoretical, and Ethical Dimensions.

Edited by Vern Neufeld Redekop and Jean-Francois Rioux

  • Multidisciplinary. introduction to Conflict Studies is the only foundational text on the market that takes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of conflict. Covering the entire range of conflict, from the small-scale interpersonal type to large-scale international conflict, introduction to Conflict Studies also examines the biological, psychological, sociological, and philosophical perspectives of such conflicts, thus preparing students for further, more discipline-focused studies in the field.
  • Current yet comprehensive. introduction to Conflict Studies incorporates the most current research in the field, while surveying the classic theoretical literature on conflict, giving students exposure to the full breadth of material related to the discipline.
  • Accessible. Praised by reviewers for its sophisticated yet accessible analysis of the theoretical literature, introduction to Conflict Studies will serve as an effective primer for students new to the field of conflict studies.
  • Full range of pedagogical support. Introduction to Conflict Studies includes chapter objectives, case studies of real conflicts, topical boxed features covering important events, facts, dates, and figures in conflict studies, a glossary of key terms, end-of-chapter summaries, and discussion questions, designed to focus and guide students through each topic area.
