Overview

In this meticulously researched book, Patrick Brogan allows specialists and general readers alike a view behind the headlines and news reports from throughout the world, detailing the violent conflicts that now afflict the world, together with chapters on past conflicts that still seriously effect events. The first edition, published in 1989 under the title The Fighting Never Stopped, accurately predicted the collapse of the Soviet Bloc; this new edition provides a substantial update. Each eye-opening chapter in World Conflicts benefits from the strength of the first edition and Brogan's continued research into the relationship between humanity, violence, history, and politics. Organized by country, it provides important statistical data and discusses the historical origins of the tensions, describes the parties involved, delineates the main events of each conflict, and examines the possible outcomes and their effect upon the prospect of peace. Armed with the thesis that the greatest dangers to peace at the end of the century are caused by ethnic animosity, Brogan provides a coherent account of the uneasy peace in Central America, Southeast Asia, and Southern Africa, and other current or seemingly-imminent conflicts around the world. World Conflicts is a balanced, forward-looking study of a world that continues to be at war. It is essential reading for anyone who needs precise, detailed information on current conflicts. This work will be an invaluable tool for journalists, libraries of all types, and students and teachers of International Affairs.
