Editorial

Dear readers,

In this issue, the peer-reviewed articles include in the first place papers dealing with the issues of “restless Balkans”. The first one, by Věra Stojarová, deals with security sectors and their importance in current developments in Kosovo. The second article, written by Josef Kraus, is devoted to Montenegro and the author identifies basic signals that could warn of a military coup.

The third text is an article by Matúš Jevčák focused on the topic of urban guerrillas in relation to Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) activities. The author maps in detail the course of the PKK / KCK uprising in Turkey in the years 2015-2016 and brings a clear development of the situation within this protracted conflict.

The fourth article comes from the author duo Vladimír Bízik and Zdeněk Kříž. The authors not only summarize here, but also critically reflect on the main ideas of Steven Pinker's work The Better Angels of our Nature and present the main currents of criticism of this book.

In addition to articles, this issue also brings one book review of an interesting professional publication. This time, the reviewed publication is a title dealing with the issue of radicalization by the author Barbora Vegrichtová entitled The Threat of Radicalization: Terrorism, Warning Signs and the Protection of Society, prepared by Dominika Kosárová.

Finally, allow me to thank you, on my own behalf and on behalf of the Editorial Board, for your continued readership. Last year, our journal managed to achieve several significant successes, which are a confirmation of our efforts to constantly improve the quality of our magazine. Thank you for your support.
