The Resolution of African Conflicts — 2008

The Management of Conflict Resolution and Post-Conflict Reconstruction

Edited by Alfred Nhema and Paul Tiyambe Zeleza

“(The Resolution of African Conflicts’s) contribution to the current debate on conflict in Africa cannot be overemphasized. It is a must-read for all professors and graduate students of African conflicts, researchers, policymakers, statesman, elites, and all those interested in peace on the continent.”

The Historian

“These two volumes clearly demonstrate the efforts by a wide range of African scholars to explain the roots, routes, regimes and resolution of African conflicts and how to re-build post-conflict societies. They offer sober and serious analyses, eschewing the sensationalism of the western media and the sophistry of some of the scholars in the global North for whom African conflicts are at worst a distraction and at best a confirmation of their pet racist and petty universalist theories.”
—From the introduction by Paul Tiyambe Zeleza

This book offers analyses of a range of African conflicts and demonstrates that peace is too important to be left to outsiders.
