Product description

Review

"In "Civil Wars" Mr Armitage traces the evolution of an explosive concept, not to pin down a proper meaning but to show why it remains so slippery... The meaning of civil war, as Mr Armitage shows, is as messy and multifaceted as the conflict it describes. His book offers an illuminating guide through the 2,000-year muddle and does a good job of filling a conspicuous void in the literature of conflict."-The Economist, 10th February 2017 The Economist "Armitage's goal, in this wide-ranging and informative book, is to examine the history of the idea of civil war as it has developed from the Romans until the present time... He has given us a book that is full of insights."-John Gray, Literary Review, March 2017. -- John Gray Literary Review
