Sarah Parkinson of Johns Hopkins University joins Marc Lynch on this week’s podcast to discuss her new book, Beyond the Lines: Social Networks and Palestinian Militant Organizations in Wartime Lebanon. The book shows that most militants approach asymmetrical warfare as a series of challenges centered around information and logistics, characterized by problems such as supplying constantly mobile forces, identifying collaborators, disrupting rival belligerents’ operations, and providing essential services like healthcare. (Starts at 0:48). Wendy Pearlman of Northwestern University discusses her article, “Emotional Sensibility: Exploring the Methodological and Ethical Implications of Research Participants’ Emotions.” (Starts at 35:58).
