Sub-state and intra-state violent contests have long preoccupied both academics and policy makers. In the post-Cold War era there has however been a renewed interest in the causes, the conduct and the ending of civil wars. Civil Wars will reflect these preoccupations. The journal has a broad academic and intellectual remit designed to be both multi and interdisciplinary. Civil Wars brings together academic pieces on all aspects of civil wars, including pieces on key topics such as why state building can degenerate into civil war, how ethnic conflict turns into civil war, the ethics of intervention and the resource implications of such conflicts but also welcomes historical work on conflicts such as the US, Spanish or Chinese civil wars. Attention is also paid to the questions of why civil wars prove so intractable. Civil Wars intends to operate at a cross section of several disciplines and to address the intellectual faultlines that the study of civil wars cross and so provides a forum for the discussion of all aspects of Civil War. Civil Wars will be required reading for many undergraduate courses in modern history, sociology and politics and, given its broad and policy relevant material, will be of interest to those in government, international organisations and the military.
