This book investigates the relationships between political violence, social violence and economic violence using examples from South Africa, Northern Ireland, Lebanon and Syria. It examines the cultural impact of war and argues that a culture of violence can explain the high levels of violence which are frequently found in post-war societies. Christina Steenkamp is a Lecturer in Social and Political Change at Oxford Brookes University, UK. She researches and publishes on issues surrounding violence, civil wars, peace processes and reconstruction. Her previous publications include the monograph Violence and Post-war Reconstruction: Managing Insecurity in the Aftermath of Peace Accords (2009).
