Does political violence ever achieve its long-term goals or does it simply perpetuate violence? Are some types of political violence more rational, ethical, or justifiable than others? Is there always a clear line between resistance and political violence? In an era in which international relations have been transformed by globalization and new technologies, and terrorism has become the paradigm of political violence, do we need new ways of understanding and classifying political violence in the twenty-first century?
