About this product
- DescriptionCamille Pecastaing looks at the twenty-first-century challenges facing the region around the Bab el Mandeb-the tiny strait that separates the Red Sea from the Indian Ocean-from civil war, piracy, radical Islamism, terrorism and the real risk of environmental and ecomic failure on both sides of the strait. The author takes us with him into Somalia and Yemen, Eritrea and Djibouti, with excursions into Ethiopia and the Sudan, as he reveals how the ecomic and environmental crisis currently in gestation could lead to more social dislocation and violence in this strategically important region.
- Author BiographyCamille Pecastaing is an assistant professor of Middle East studies at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. His areas of expertise include historical sociology, evolutionary social psychology, and comparative politics.
