It is a central argument of this book that occasions of violent confrontation play a crucial role in promoting the escalation and continuation of conflict. The development of a violent conflict is influenced and shaped by the contemporary events which make up that conflict to a much greater extent than the development of a non-violent political process is. This is because conflict is so much more intense and immediate than ‘peacetime’ politics.
