Violent conflicts have exacted a heavy toll on Africarsquo;s societies, polities, and economies. This book presents African scholarsrsquo; views of why conflicts start in their continent. The causes of conflict are too often examined by scholars from the countries that run the proxy wars and sell the arms to fuel them. This volume offers theoretically sophisticated, empirically grounded, and compelling analyses of the roots of African conflicts.
