Democratic Peace Theory and Democratic Transition Theory

There are at least 2 others:
1) Rummel, authoritarian governments kill millions.

I’m not sure of the exact URL, but its on this root site. I think the later link **may** be more helpful

2) Moore, a law review article, I seem to remember it was long term data. (I seem to remember he was at the University of Virginia or the law review was from the University of Virginia).

You will want to research democratic transitions:

The classic argument here is from Mansfield and Snyder.
As I understand it, Mansfield and Snyder have written a couple of articles, but this is pretty much the original.

They also created this book:

As countries shift from authortarian to democratic it opens up nationalist feelings which create ethic violence/war.
