Overview

This work examines the conflict between movements and regimes using dynamic mathematical modeling methods. Most of the deaths from political violence in the world in this century have not been caused by war, but by conflict between governments and dissenters.

Employs dynamic modeling methods to analyze the interaction among regimes, dissidents, third parties that support the dissidents, and conflict resolvers. The goal is to illuminate how movement- regime conflicts unfold and to present a theoretical approach that might prove useful in other conflict situations such as interstate wars and labor relations. Of interest and perhaps help to adherents of any of the four parties involved. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
