Abstract:
The Roots of African Conflicts: The Causes & Costs is a comprehensive collection of essays which try to unveil not only the root causes of African conflicts, but also the physical and psychological, socio-political and economic damages that these conflicts have inflicted upon Africa, its people and environment. It is comprehensive in a sense that it touches the two aspects of conflicts in which most African countries have been embroiled since independence. Both African violent and nonviolent conflicts are the centerpiece of discussion in this book. With regard to violent conflicts, the emphasis was on armed conflicts. The book also discusses poverty and food insecurity in Africa as examples of nonviolent conflicts. Twelve popular scholars in the field of African studies contribute to the edition of this book. This book is divided into nine chapters preceded by an introduction and a prologue.
