About this title
This title examines the nature and objectives of violence in the region in the 19th century. It is particularly concerned with highland Ethiopia and the Great Lakes. It will be of interest to those interested in pre-colonial African history, military history, and anyone involved in modern development and conflict resolution seeking to understand the deeper historical roots of African warfare.Review:
A useful book that will serve as inspiration for future scholarship on violence and conflict in eastern Africa and beyond. AFRICAN HISTORY
An important and thoughtful overview that reminds us that African military history is worth studying in its own right, and that it illuminates much else about 'state and society'. AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW
Although a large number of local and regional studies touch on warfare, few have made it a central theme and even fewer have given the topic the kind of thoughtful and wide-reaching treatment offered here. - Richard Waller
