Hardcover. 372 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.International Relations Studies Series, 12 (International Studies Library, 23) Based on three departure points - a novel analytical framework, previously unpublished data on conflict and conflict resolution in Africa, and a survey of external and internal structural constraints facing the continent - this volume is a comprehensive examination of intra-state armed conflicts in Africa after the Cold War; attempts to terminate them and challenges to successful war termination. The focus is on short-term concerns: demilitarisation, issues related to human and collective security, and the post-conflict distribution of political power. Chapters centre on key explanatory factors influencing the volatile periods just before and after a war is terminated, when negotiation replaces fighting and when peace agreements are being hammered out and implemented, often in an environment of fear, mistrust and resource scarcity.
