As scholars attempt to understand the global politics of the post-Cold War system, they must attend not only to changing structures of global order, but to the changing patterns of international, transnational, and domestic behavior. A study of conflict needs to focus on the investigation of conflict processes that cut across levels of analysis. This book approaches social conflict through the study of protracted conflict. As developed by Edward Azar, "protracted conflict" is long-term, ongoing conflict which permeates all aspects of society. It is explicitly linked to two-level analyses, the analysis of crisis, the nature of identity groups, and enduring rivalries. These essays bring new thinking to the notion of protracted conflict, focusing on Israel, the Palestinians, and Lebanon; the Philippines and Nicaragua; Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan; and Northern Ireland.
