Rebels

Rebels is an exciting and innovative new series looking at rebel groups and their place in global politics. Written by experts, and published in conjunction with the Department of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford, the books serve as definitive introductions to the individual organizations, while seeking to place them within a broader geographical and political framework. They examine the origins, ideology, and future direction of each group, while posing such questions as: When does a “rebel” political movement become a “terrorist” organization? And what are the social and economic drivers behind political violence? Provocative and original, the series is essential reading for anyone interested in how rebel groups operate today.  

The Department of Peace Studies is a world-class center which since 1973 has developed a unique interdisciplinary research culture. Its mission is to engage in empirical, theoretical and applied research in order to prevent and resolve conflicts and develop peaceful societies; and to provide an enabling environ¬ment for international research excellence involving diverse and critical approaches.
