About this item

This book is accessible for undergraduates and non-experts, yet detailed enough for scholars, policymakers, military professionals, and others involved in regional and global security. Authors Richard A. Lobban (Sudan Studies Association; Naval War College) and Christopher H. Dalton (Marine Corps Logistics Operations Group; Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center) examine the causes, leaders, tactics, strategies, and outcomes of African insurgencies, looking at several types of situations: ethnic, political, and colonially based insurgencies and post-colonial revolutions. The describe the chronological development of insurgencies, crimes against humanity, and war crimes in Africa, from precolonial and colonial insurgencies through national liberation movements, separatist and irredentist movements, revolutionary and Islamist insurgencies, and recent genocide, warlords, and proxy wars. The final chapter raises hope through peace negotiations, regime change, improvements in human rights and minority rights, and curbing arms trafficking. Lobban and Dalton have written other books on Africa. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
