The Introduction gives an outline of all the pertinent topics discussed in the book. Chapter 2 attempts to assess the impact of civilian victimization on the achievement of wartime objectives. Chapter 3 studies the relationship between the majority and minority ethnic groups in the context of the Germans in Czechoslovakia and the Greeks in Ottoman Turkey. In Chapters 4 and 5, the choice of nation-building policies by states is discussed, and in Chapter 5, the effectiveness of ethnic partition through population transfer is evaluated. The editor discusses the relationship between ongoing conflict and the eruption of nationalist violence in the French empire in Chapter 6, and the effects of repression in Chapter 7. The study also presents a composite-actor approach explaining violence in civil conflicts in Chapter 8, violence in self-determination struggles in Chechnya and Punjab in Chapter 9, and several hypotheses on violent and nonviolent resistance in Chapter 10.
