`This welcome collection is a significant mile-stone for Conflict Studies. It offers a fresh perspective on a range of conceptual issues and contemporary cases, and in doing so bridges a long-standing gap between critical and mainstream approaches to war and violent conflict in International Relations.'-- Oliver Richmond, University of Manchester, UK 'The authors brilliantly take us back to basics: how to achieve peace. For the art of conflict transformation the authors vividly demonstrate why we need to understand conflict escalation and continuation. Required reading for all involved in conflict prevention and resolution.'-Tarja Cronberg, SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute), Sweden `This volume reflects the reinvigoration of cutting-edge peace research in Denmark and a new wave of Nordic peace research. By advancing a novel interdisciplinary approach to conflict dynamics, emotion, memory and media, the book breaks new ground in Peace and Conflict Studies.'-- Karin Aggestam, Lund University, Sweden
