This research draws on a survey led by the authors together with the Post-conflict Reintegration Initiative for Development and Empowerment (PRIDE) in Sierra Leone. Financial support was provided by the Earth Institute at Columbia University, and logistical support came from the Demobilization and Reintegration Office of the United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL). We are particularly grateful to Alison Giffen and Richard Haselwood for their extensive work on this project; to Allan Quee, Patrick Amara, and Lawrence Sessay, our partners in the field at PRIDE; to Desmond Molloy at UNAMSIL; to students in our jointly taught graduate seminar on African Civil Wars who, through theoretical debates and empirical exercises, shaped the analysis offered in this article; to Bernd Beber for excellent research assistance; and to anonymous reviewers of this manuscript and participants in seminars at UCLA, Stanford, Columbia, McGill, and the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association for thoughtful feedback.
