Overview

With so much attention paid to America's war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, the world has all but forgotten the spread of terrorism in other regions. From South Asia to South America, terrorist groups are on the rise. One of the most dangerous regions is the greater Horn of Africa along with Yemen, its volatile neighbor. This book offers authoritative insight into the struggle against terrorism in the Horn what has been done and what work remains.

Robert Rotberg and his colleagues analyze the situation in Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. The esteemed contributors are prominent scholars and practitioners, including several former U.S. ambassadors. Their contributions reveal how each country's government with or without U.S. help is (or is not) working to combat terrorism within its own borders and to prevent its spread. Rotberg provides an overview of the entire region, drawing lessons particularly for U.S. policy.

Ba ttling Terror in the Horn of Africa is a handbook on what needs to be done at the tension-filled crossroads of Arabia and Africa. It is important reading for all those with an interest in African or Middle Eastern affairs or the need to learn more about international terrorism.

Contributors include Robert D. Burrowes (University of Washington), Timothy Carney (former U.S. ambassador to Sudan), Johnnie Carson (former ambassador to Kenya), Dan Connell (Grassroots International), Kenneth J. Menkhaus (Davidson College), Robert I. Rotberg (Harvard University), and Lange Schemerhorn (former ambassador to Djibouti).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this timely book, Robert Rotberg and his coauthors provide authoritative insight into the struggle against terrorism in the Horn, analyzing what has been done and what work remains...Battling Terrorism in the Horn of Africa provides valuable lessons on what needs to be done at the tension-filled crossroads of Africa and the Arab world. It is important reading for all those concerned with understanding and combatting international terrorism, as well as those with an interest in African or Middle Eastern affairs." —Roberto C. Delgadillo, Books of the week.blogspot.com

" Battling Terrorism in the Horn of Africa fills a vacuum in the literature on U.S. foreign policy towards the Horn of Africa since 9/11. The book will certainly be of interest to those with an interest in the sub-state, state, sub-regional and transnational dimensions of Islamist parties in the region." —Alexandra M. Dias, African Affairs

"Recommended." —H. Glickman, Haverford College, CHOICE
