This book is part of a continuing series that explores international political change. The volume focuses on African nation-states, their internal conflicts, and their role in the international arena, and also delves into history, political leadership, rebellion, military conflict, policymaking, and diplomacy in Africa. Topics such as ethnic differences, political corruption, and revolution are discussed against the backdrop of contemporary political life. Recent experiences in Somalia and Rwanda and the United States and the United Nations' intervention in African conflicts are also given particular attention. Rather than attempting to offer definitive solutions to the problems and questions facing Africa today, the work takes a more proactive and informative approach.
