Book Review: Third Generation Early Warning

I’ve been invited by the Foundation for Co-Existence (FCE) to review their new book entitled “Third Generation Early Warning,” edited by Kumar Rupesinghe. I gladly accepted and thought I’d blog my review chapter by chapter as each is filled with rich content.

Overall, this book is a very much-needed contribution to the field of conflict early warning and I fully congratulate the editor along with the authors for having produced the first book on third generation early warning systems. Thank you. Your addition to the discourse and literature on conflict early warning is simply invaluable. Many thanks as well for your reference to my work and this blog in particular.

What follows then is meant as constructive criticism. Rupesinghe and colleagues have done the hard work; criticizing is always the easy. To this end, my comments on the individual chapters below are meant to invite further conversation and thus maintain the important momentum established by the publication of this book. Note that links below will be added in sequence as I work through my review
