This book provides a history of the last ten years of Sierra Leone, including a new and insightful discussion of the Sierra Leonean war which questions the assumption that it is taking place between two parties and suggests instead that there are various armed groups that have little interest in ending the conflict. The war and continuing UN presence in Sierra Leone have made it one of the African countries given a good deal of attention in the international press, and Keen's book is the most up-to-date source of reliable information and insight on the current situation and recent history.
