Synopsis

In "The Normality of Civil War", Teresa Koloma Beck uses theories of the everyday to analyze the social processes of civil war, specifically the type of conflict that is characterized by the expansion of violence into so-called normal life. She looks beyond simplistic notions of victims and perpetrators to reveal the complex shifting interdependencies that emerge during wartime. She also explores how the process of normalization effects both armed groups and the civilian population. A brief but smart analysis, "The Normality of Civil War" gets at the root of the social dynamics of war and what lies ahead for the participants after its end.
