The contributors to this volume present cutting edge approaches to state failure-looking at both conditions of conflict & economic development, dealing with the conceptualization, causes, & consequences of state failure, as well as policy-oriented analyses as to how failure can be contained, reversed, or prevented.

The contributors to this volume have addressed failed states through:
* multiple levels of analysis, assessing domestic and cross-border phenomena, internal and external conflict, domestic and international political economy;
* multiple disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches representing political science, sociology, and economics;
* various methodological approaches, including large-N empirical analyses, case studies, and simulations; and
* through both basic and applied research, drawing on the work of academics, IGOs, NGOs, and national governments. This book was originally published as a special issue of Conflict Management and Peace Science.
