My first book, published by Cambridge University Press in October 2018, focuses on civilian agency and mobilization ‘from below’ and explains violence and non-violence in communal wars in Ambon/Maluku Province in eastern Indonesia and Jos/Plateau State in central Nigeria. The book’s comparison of vulnerable mixed communities and (un)successful prevention efforts demonstrates how under courageous leadership resilient communities can emerge that adapt to changing conflict zones and collectively prevent killings. My book develops the concepts of communal war and social resilience for a systematic analysis of local violence, (non-)escalation, and implications for conflict prevention and civilian protection.

‘This is an excellent book: precisely the kind of detailed, field-based analysis needed for a deeper understanding of the nature and dynamics of communal conflict. The book sheds an important light on the ways in which populations and communities caught up in war adapt and respond to the exceptional circumstances in which they find themselves. Krause has made an important contribution to the field.’
