This comprehensive study of State failure upholds that the collapse of States in sub-Saharan Africa is a self-inflicted problem caused by the abandonment of the principle of effectiveness during decolonization. On the one hand, the abandonment of effectiveness may have facilitated the recognition of the new African States, but on the other it did lead to the creation of States that were essentially powerless: some of which became utter failures.

Review:

'"It is my view that this is not only a good book but an important book. ...[It] should be studied not only by those particularly interested in failed States and what to do about them but also by anyone wanting to understand more deeply the meaning and uses of [the] basic concepts of international law.'
From the Foreword by Sir Robert Y. Jennings, QC.

'"Cette ouvrage, au riche contenu theorique appuye sur des examples tires des decolonisations africaines, conclut sur l'idee heritee de Hobbes qui fait primer l'ordre sur la justice au sein d'un ordre juridique decentralise. Quelle que soit l'opinion du lecteur, il ne peut rester indifferent aux arguments du professeur Kreijen provoquant la reflexion sur l'effectivite, et, plus largement, sur la necessite d'un certain realisme dans le droit international."' A.T.N., "Extrait de l'Annuaire Francais de Droit Internationale," 2004.
