  • Alexander Downes' new book
    Diane M Dunn, for faculty, 2008/05/02 15:07:35

    In this book, Downes asks why states engage in civilian victimization -- military strategies that target an enemy's civilian population in wartime. He argues that such strategies are employed in two circumstances: to coerce an adversary to give up when leaders become desperate to win or to reduce their military casualties in costly wars of attrition, and to eliminate actual or potential resistance by the population in wars to conquer and annex an enemy's territory. http://www.duke.edu/~downes/publications.htm

    Congratulations Alex!
