Violence
Analysis, Intervention, and Prevention

By Sean Byrne and Jessica Senehi

In a world desperate to comprehend and address what appears to be an ever-enlarging explosion of violence, this book provides important insights into crucial contemporary issues, with violence providing the lens. Violence: Analysis, Intervention, and Prevention provides a multidisciplinary approach to the analysis and resolution of violent conflicts. In particular, the book discusses ecologies of violence, and micro-macro linkages at the local, national, and international levels as well as intervention and prevention processes critical to constructive conflict transformation.

The causes of violence are complex and demand a deep multidimensional analysis if we are to fully understand its driving forces. Yet in the aftermath of such destruction there is hope in the resiliency, knowledge, and creativity of communities, organizations, leaders, and international agencies to transform the conditions that lead to such violence.

Sean Byrne is a professor and cofounder of the doctoral and joint master’s programs in peace and conflict studies, and founding executive director of the Mauro Centre for Peace and Justice at St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba. He is the author or coeditor of several books, including Critical Issues in Peace and Conflict Studies: Theory, Practice, and Pedagogy.

Failed States and Fragile Societies
A New World Disorder?
Edited by Ingo Trauschweizer and Steven M. Miner

In case studies from the former Yugoslavia, Somalia, Iraq, and Colombia, Failed States and Fragile Societies argues that early intervention to stabilize social, economic, and political systems offers the greatest promise, whereas military intervention at a later stage is both costlier and less likely to succeed.
