'... The Politics of Collective Violence is a learned, perspicacious and vivacious book, the product of a scholar with a remarkable historical command, an eye for unusual comparison and a talent for compelling argument ... an important contribution to a burgeoning literature on the sources of conflict and violence.' International Affairs
'[The author's] writing is accessible and entertaining. His theory is elegant and its explanatory power is demonstrated ... through wide-ranging and sophisticated discussions of historical and contemporary cases. the book is worth reading for its treatment of the Rwandan genocide alone.' Political Studies Review
"The Politics of Collective Violence offers an arsenal of testable hypotheses that have the capacity to render intelligible the actions of statesmen, terrorists, and road-ragers who turn to violence as a means of staking claims, asserting identity, or exacting retribution...Tilly has drawn the subject of violence into the same rational-strategic frame that defines political process theory." American Journal of Sociology
"....interesting insights...useful..." Foreign Affairs
