Violence in civil wars is not crazy, raging, or meaningless. Rather, it is a complex process shared by political, military, and civilian noncombatant actors. This is what the author of the book aims to prove, based on his in-depth research into the existing theories about civil war and his study of dozens of civil wars from the dawn of history until today. From the perspective of various disciplines, starting with political science, passing through sociology, psychology, war studies, history, statistics, and mathematics, the author concludes that civil war is not insane, and that its violence is not driven by emotions or an emotional state, but rather has a logic from which sparks and sustains it.
