Editorial Reviews

Journal Of Modern African Studies
The literature on the challenges faced by post-conflict states is abundant. It is thus welcome that this edited book does not try to provide broad discussions but rather tackles precise and essential aspects of post-war situations. This constitutes the common thread of the book as it is quite successful in picking diverse but key issues related to post-conflict contexts. The book's second unifying principle is that it has a geographical bias towards Sierra Leone, Rwanda and to a lesser extent Liberia and Mozambique.

K. C. Morrison
African Democracy and Development edited by Simpson and Veney is an excellent discussion of post-conflict situations in Africa. Sierra Leone and Rwanda are the most deeply explored here and are two of the most spectacular cases of conflict in recent history. This work advances how we think about and study a welcome phenomenon in contemporary African states.
