The goal of this course is to familiarize the student with the different approaches to the study of war and terror: economic, historical, analytical, formal theoretical, and statistical. Most of all, the course is designed to get students to think critically about traditional explanations and approaches. The focus of the course will be on civil war and the use of violence and terror in civil wars. 'Conventional' terrorism is covered as well, albeit less so.
