Zones of Conflict in Africa: Theories and Cases

Synopsis

Torn by ongoing civil and military violence, Africa presents a challenge to scholars interested in the root causes of conflict. The contributors of this book employ an eclectic array of current explanations of civil strife and how to resolve it. The first half of the book provides the relevant theoretical background, while the remaining chapters of this volume gauge the accuracy and usefulness of the current thinking on African conflicts by grounding it in case studies drawn from the Great Lakes Region, Liberia, Nigeria, and Zambia.
