About this product
- DescriptionThis book surveys the history of armed conflict in Africa in the period since decolonization and independence. The number of post-independence conflicts in Africa has been considerable, and this book introduces to readers a comprehensive analysis of their causes and character. Tracing the evolution of warfare from anti-colonial and anti-apartheid campaigns to complex conflicts in which factionalized armies, militias and rebel groups fight with each other and prey upon n-combatants, it allows the readers a new perspective to understand violence on the continent. The book is written to appeal t only to students of history and African politics, but also to experts in the policy community, the military and humanitarian agencies.
