Civil wars in Africa, edited by Kelechi A. Kalu and George Klay Kieh Jr

"This book argues that civil wars in Africa stem from the contradictions and crises that have been generated by the post-colonial state as the result of the adverse effects of colonialism and the failure of successive generations of African leaders to lead the process of changing the state's nature, character, and mission"--, Provided by publisher
