Greed & Grievance: Economic Agendas in Civil Wars
Mats R. Berdal, David Malone
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2000 - History - 251 pages
This volume identifies the economic and social factors underlying the perpetuation of civil wars, exploring as well the economic incentives and disencentives available to international actors seeking to restore peace to war-torn societies. The authors consider the economic rationality of conflict for beligerents, the economic strategies that elites use to sustain their positions, and in what situations elites find war to be more profitable than peace.
