This book, first published in 2003, attempts to explain collective violence and to identify the best ways to mitigate it.


'Each chapter leaves the reader with a great deal to think about, and the book as a whole raises questions that Tilly and others will hopefully tackle in the future.' E-Extreme '... The Politics of Collective Violence is a learned, perspicacious and vivacious book, the product of a scholar with a remarkable historical command, an eye for unusual comparison and a talent for compelling argument ... an important contribution to a burgeoning literature on the sources of conflict and violence.' International Affairs '[The author's] writing is accessible and entertaining. His theory is elegant and its explanatory power is demonstrated ... through wide-ranging and sophisticated discussions of historical and contemporary cases. the book is worth reading for its treatment of the Rwandan genocide alone.'
