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.
Fox gives us a reasoned, insightful and comprehensive approach to the role of religion in international conflict. He avoids the pitfalls of the current debate, moving discussion to a deeper intellectual level. This is a must read for policy makers and scholars of international relations.--Rachel McCleary, Harvard University, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs
