"A sophisticated and persuasive late-modernist political
analysis that consistently draws the reader into the
narratives of the author and those of the people of
violence in Northern Ireland to whom he talked. . . .
Simply put, this book is a feast for the intellect"--
Thomas M. Wilson, "American Anthropologist"
"One of the best books to have been written on Northern
Ireland. . . . A highly imagination and significant book.
"Formations of Violence" is an important addition to
the literature on political violence."--David E. Schmitt,
"American Political Science Review"
