Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0719039584, Hardcover)This text re-examines the understanding of war and violent conflict through a critical, post-positivist lens. It offers a radical, interpretive approach to conflict studies, and finds new applications for some of the latest ideas in critical social theory. Jabri argues that to understand conflict we must see it as a social phenomenon - the product of societies and the politics which establish their identities. She advances the idea that discursive and institutional practices interact to generate ways in which international actors legitimate themselves. These practices are central to the perpetuation of war, and their transformation is a prerequisite for establishing the conditions for peace.
