Editorial Reviews

A collection of 26 important and influential essays that both connect terrorism to the complex and varied incidents of political violence in Africa and also stress a broad range of causes and effects. The events discussed deal mainly with the transition from colonialism and the post-independence period and with sub-Saharan Africa. A great deal of attention is devoted to the problems of South Africa. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
