The Economics of Conflict and Peace
History and Applications
Published by Cambridge University Press
Written for an audience of students, general readers, and economists alike, this volume is a primer on the field of the economics of conflict and peace. It offers a reasonably comprehensive, systematic, and detailed overview – even if in broad strokes – of the field’s orthodox and heterodox history of thought and current theories and evidence. We view this Element as a baseline account on which to build a future, separate and more fully developed, piece on the economics of peace, economic growth, and human development.
