Drawing from an original data set of 455 groups, their target states, and supporters over a span of more than sixty years, she demonstrates that states are most likely to support rebel groups when they are confronted with internal and external threats simultaneously, while rebels select strong states and democracies when seeking outside support.

Through its broad chronological sweep, States in Disguise reveals how and why the phenomenon of state and rebel group alliances has evolved over time. -- from back cover."@en ;
