Late 20th Century Saw Armed Conflict Turn Inward in the Form of Genocide and Civil War, Says Tilly

Conflicts within nations steadily and dangerously displaced interstate wars as the major sites of collective violence after World War II, says Charles Tilly, the Joseph L. Buttenwieser Professor of Social Science. Later 20th century conflicts increasingly took the form of genocide and civil war, increasing the proportion of civilian death in armed conflict from five percent in World War I, to 50 percent in World War II, to 90 percent in 1990s wars.
