Product Description


There are few countries as misunderstood, or even as unknown, as Eritrea. The beleaguered nation encapsulates some of the region's most pressing issues: it has an undemocratic power structure, a low level of socio-economic development, a highly militarized political system given increasingly to armed adventurism, and the tendency to disregard international opinion in the search for local solutions. Yet Eritrea is becoming increasingly important to the stability of sub-Saharan Africa. This volume brings together the insights of international analysts and scholars in an effort to understand the nature of Eritrea's foreign relations, both regionally and in the wider international arena.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally 1 Feb 2010
Finally there is a book on Eritrea that provides a factual and informed overview of probably one of the least understood countries of the world. These essays provide the average interested reader, as well as expert scholars, with a valuable and in depth picture of the country. This book provides important and previously unavailable background information to one of the countries that has an is increasingly important role in the fate of the horn of Africa.

This excellent collection of essays really helped me to get some understanding of what has been drivng Eritrea's seemingly eratic and counterproductive apraoch to the rest of the world. I'd really recomend this book for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of this fascinating country.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive analysis of Eritrea-Sudan-Ethiopia relations 14 May 2010
By Sigfrido Burgos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a thoroughly researched book that includes opinions, comments and analyses of scholars and commentators familiar with Eritrea's external relations. For readers interested in geopolitics, political economy, rural and agricultural development, and conflict resolution in North Africa, this is an essential read. It has three chapters dealing with the historical contexts of foreign relations, as well as a chapter analysing the role the US has played and will continue to play in the region, in particular with relation to the war on terror and keeping tabs on radicalism. The last chapter offers some conclusions and way forward. After reading 160 pages, you'll get a good grasp of the problems, issues, concerns and drivers surrounding the sustained conditions of hunger, poverty, armed conflict, poor governance, institutional failures and widespread underdevelopment in the Horn of Africa. The fact that is published jointly by Chatham and Brookings gives credibility to this scholarly work. Enjoyable reading!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an informative book on mostly facts about Eritrea's foreign affairs. Richard was very thorough and most importantly, factual.
