Violent Borders:Refugees and the Right to Move Reece Jones
The IRAs ability to exploit the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland was central to the organisations capacity to wage its Long War over a quarter of a century. This book is the first to look at the role of the border in sustaining the Provisionals and its central role in Anglo-Irish relations throughout the Troubles.
This is an early novel by the phenomenally successful author of frontier, western and sports stories, the novel is the second in a trilogy. It deals with historical characters and incidents in the Ohio Valley in the late 18th century, especially with the foundation of Gnaddenhutten, a missionary village intended to bring Christianity to the Indians of Ohio, despite the violent opposition of both Indians and white renegades. The story deals with the attempt by Moravian Church missionaries to Christianize Indians and how two brothers lives take different paths upon their arrival on the border, ?s the two brothers make very different choices, as one woman loves them both, they will both learn, win, and lose in the presence of a man larger than life fighting a war all his own.

This book sheds new light on the security challenges for failed states posed by violent non-state armed actors (VNSAs). By focusing on the Syrian Civil War, it explores the characteristics, ideologies and strategies of the Islamic State (ISIS) and the Peoples Protection Units (YPG), as well as the regional and geopolitical impacts of these VNSAs. The contributors also cover topics such as the re-imagination of borders, the YPGs demands for national sovereignty, and the involvement of regional and global powers in the Syrian crisis. This timely volume by regional scholars and experts examines various aspects of the emergence and expansion of violent non-state actors in the Syrian/Iraqi conflict. The wealth of detail and approaches enhance our understanding of the transformation and dynamics of contemporary conflicts within and beyond the region. Keith Krause, The Graduate Institute, Geneva This book opens fascinating glimpses into contrasting forms of state-like governance established by non-state actors, ISIS and the Kurdish PYD. [...] It is an important source for students of the Syrian conflict, civil wars, failed states and hybrid governance.Raymond Hinnebusch, Director Centre for Syrian Studies, University of St. Andrews This book is an excellent resource for those looking for an interdisciplinary account of VNSAs during the Syrian civil war. It makes a nice contribution to the study of violent non state actors and poses a set of new and pressing questions. Max Abrahms, Northeastern University.
