New scholarship has paid much closer attention to the microdynamics of violence, the strikingly uneven distribution of violence, the relationship between master cleavages and intimate local and personal struggles, and to process, history and contingency. Nationalist ideology is understood to be important but, in complex ways, bound up intimately with institutions and with everyday relationships at the local level. We introduce the contributions to this special issue, outlining the way in which they highlight the power of ideas, narratives and micro-level solidarity in mobilization for violence and how they address the crucial importance of territoriality in linking ideas and action.
