This book studies the processes which lead to explosion of civil strife and tries to spell out the policy options available to address the challenges faced by post-conflict economies. It calls for a more integrated policy approach which can gradually repair trust in public institutions as it addresses the vulnerabilities and grievances that helped start the process.

Anderson, Ph.D., Ltcol, USMC, Retired, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Military Review
