Om Peter

Beskrivning
My research interests fall into several broad categories: (A) The development of political order and orders of warfare, between and within polities; (B) Military organizations; (C) Climate change and war. Often I apply a kind of longue durée research strategy that spans several centuries of European and Asian history. I am also very interested in comparative studies and my studies range from medieval European and Middle Eastern history to contemporary African security. In all of my research fields I endeavour to use research findings to criticize and enrich fundamental concepts of social theory. My main ambition is to join several disciplinary traditions, most importantly history, sociology and political science –and lately anthropology– in a mutually enriching study of politics and war.

My latest book Family Power –Kinship, War and Political Order in Eurasia, 500-2018 is just published by Cambridge University Press.

I am currently working on a book about conceptions of uncertainty, surprise and ontological control in war and politics.
