"A sophisticated and persuasive late-modernist political
analysis that consistently draws the reader into the
narratives of the author and those of the people of
violence in Northern Ireland to whom he talked. . . .
Simply put, this book is a feast for the intellect"—
Thomas M. Wilson, American Anthropologist
"One of the best books to have been written on Northern
Ireland. . . . A highly imagination and significant book.
Formations of Violence is an important addition to
the literature on political violence."—David E. Schmitt,
American Political Science Review
