Elmi’s contribution is most effective when it examines the Islamic awakening and historicizing Islam. ... [the book] provides useful understanding of an important area. (CHOICE)
A timely, topically urgent and well-written book that adds much to the literature on Somali studies. It should benefit students and researchers in all areas of the social and educational sciences, and it could influence policy development in the Somali context, and by extension, perhaps other parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. (Ali A. Abdi, University of Alberta)
In this excellent, well-researched work, Elmi gets right to the heart of what makes Somalia a failed state and what are the prerequisites for sustainable peacebuilding to take root in that unfortunate war-torn country. This is a must-read for anyone concerned about the plight of the Horn of Africa and the fate of Somalia. (W. Andy Knight, Chair and Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Alberta)
To the best of my knowledge provides unequalled documentation on the actors in the drama of Somalia' (Samir Amin)
