Current Issue: Volume 108 Issue 01

From the Editor: This issue (Volume 107, Issue 3) contains several articles that address important contemporary political issues, such as the effect of U.S. gun laws on levels of violence in border areas of Mexico, the causes of rape in civil wars, why campaign spending has skyrocketed in recent years, and whether ethnically integrative institutions actually change the level of prejudice and reduce the salience of ethnicity after an ethnic civil war has occurred.
