"This book provides a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the wide variety of political insults that so often destructively escalate social conflicts. Karina Korostelina's case studies demonstrate the dynamics of insults as they are shaped by the interaction between members of in-groups and out-groups. The book abounds with insights, for example relating to the benefits that in-groups derive from being insulting. She also usefully discusses ways in which political insults can be dealt with so as to mitigate their dangerous consequences."-Louis Kriesberg, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Syracuse University "Political Insults is engaging, insightful, and very well written. Korostelina guides the reader through well-chosen case studies by using a novel conceptual framework for understanding the role of political insults in conflict. I recommend this book to students, researchers, and teachers interested in political behavior and intergroup conflict."-Fathali M. Moghaddam, author of IThe Psychology of DictatorshipRRezension:
