War and Conflict in Africa
After the Cold War, Africa earned the dubious distinction of being the world’s bloodiest continent. But how can we explain this proliferation of armed conflicts? What caused them and what were their main characteristics? And what did the worlds governments do to stop them?
Paul Williams offers an in-depth and wide-ranging assessment of more than 600 armed conflicts which took place in Africa from 1990 to the present day – from the continental catastrophe in the Great Lakes region to the sprawling conflicts across the Sahel and the web of wars in the horn of Africa.
War and Conflict in Africa will be essential reading for all students of international peace and security studies as well as Africa’s international relations.
