Is interstate conflict increasing or decreasing? To answer that question, it is important to first understand how rivalry processes--and therefore the genesis of interstate conflict--work. This unique reference examines the roughly 200 strategic rivalries--two states that view each other as threatening competitors to the point that they categorize their antagonists as enemies--that have been responsible for nearly 80 percent of the warfare of the past two hundred years. This work not only discusses rivalry resolutions but also unresolved, ongoing conflicts into the twenty-first century. Divided into six global regions, HANDBOOK OF INTERNATIONAL RIVALRIES provides a research-friendly template approach to rivalries that includes the location and origin, duration, level of conflict, resolution, and symmetry for each rivalry.
