Welcome to the Spring 2010 edition of The Culture & Conflict Review.
We are pleased to present you with an engaging selection of new articles on several timely and important topics: COIN: Theory & Practice; The Iraq Invasion: Seven Years Later; Diplomacy & Tribal Politics; Book Reviews & Author Interview; and CCS in the News.
In this edition of the Review, we are once again very proud to present a diverse set of new articles, as well as to devote some attention to ongoing events in Iraq, as this month marks the seventh year since the U.S. led Coalition invaded Iraq and overthrew the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein.
Several other regions of interest are examined as well – from the rich tribal mosaic of South Asia to the Tibetan homeland in the high Himalaya to the enduring indigenous societies of the Americas – in articles as well as in reviews of newly published books addressing the fundamental interconnection of culture and conflict.
