Product Description


By putting together these two comprehensive and well-researched volumes, Nhema and Zeleza have done a great service to the Africanist community as well as to interested laypersons. (They) should be commended for selecting and editing twenty well-researched and thoughtfully argued contributions to provide us with what is arguably one of the most comprehensive and perceptive treatments to date of conflict and conflict resolution in Africa from both a historical and contemporary perspective. AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEWThe ambitious task established by the editors of uncovering the roots and the solutions to the current conflicts in Africa is excellently addressed by the contributors (...) the variety of views is actually one of the volumes' strengths, providing the reader with a wide spectrum of approaches to the issues at hand, enhanced by the variety of research methods used by the contributors. (...) The two volumes therefore present an intellectual challenge, pushing scholars to think about a myriad of circumstances and actors involved in some of the most poignant issues of our time. (...) These two volumes thus will not only serve scholars committed to the study of peace and conflict, but also policy makers and anyone interested in gaining insights towards the real potential for peace in Africa. JOURNAL OF INTERVENTION & STATEBUILDING Nhema and Zeleza have assembled in these two extraordinary companion volumes (The Roots of African Conflicts and The Resolution of African Conflicts), one of the most comprehensive treatments of conflicts in Africa. The two volumes, with admirable competence, address the multiple causes of conflicts from a historical and contemporary perspective, and creatively attempt to offer solutions to these conflicts that go beyond most contemporary analyses. In the end, both the editors and the contributors point to democratic governance as the best solution to African conflicts. All Africa's well wishers, scholars of conflict and African leaders in particular, need to heed the lessons presented in these two volumes. ... a must read for anyone interested in Africa's peaceful development. - Julius E. Nyang'oro, Professor and Chair, African and Afro-American Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
