In Religion, Civilization, and Civil War author Jonathan Fox carves out a new space of research and interrogation in conflict studies. Covering over five decades, this study provides the most comprehensive and detailed empirical analysis of the impact of religion and civilization on domestic conflict to date and will become a critical resource for both international relations and political science scholars.
"This is perhaps the most comprehensive fact-based analysis of the religious causes of conflict to date. Rather than selecting examples that support a previously decided upon argument, the author gathered data on all violent conflicts for a fifty-six year period, asked the correct questions and got some surprising answers. His basic finding is that religion is an important influence on conflict but it is less important than other causes like nationalism. Nevertheless conflict can not be fully understood without including religion in the paradigm. Furthermore, using this data, the author provides a comprehensive analysis of Huntington's famous "clash of civilizations" theory and finds it wanting. In addition, the book provides the theoretical background for all of the above. In short, this book accomplishes a lot for a single book and is a must-read for anyone who wants to fully understand religion's role in conflict as well as anyone who wants to understand, violent conflict in general." - reader's review.
