Chapter 2 of The Bottom Billion, by Paul Collier, discusses the two kinds of conflict that keep the poorest countries in poverty. The two sections discuss the details of the two kinds of conflict. The first kind of conflict is violent and perhaps prolonged civil war. The second kind of conflict is the short, sudden violence of a military coupe. Collier says both kinds "trap a country in poverty" (p. 17).
