Barbara Walter’s Script for Civil War in America: A Review Essay
Jack Snyder reviews Barbara Walter’s How Civil Wars Start and How to Stop Them. Walter argues that modern civil wars take the form of guerrilla warfare and organized terrorism. They are started mainly by declining ethnic groups in polarized partial democracies. Her contention that the contemporary United States is heading in this direction has a surface plausibility, but requires strong qualifications.
