Summary
This compelling book serves as a comprehensive resource for readers interested in contemporary security issues in Africa. It details the impact of complex challenges in Africa and explains why addressing them grows increasingly important. Acknowledges principal terms, underlying concepts, and specific case studies in an exploratory overview of contemporary security issues in Africa. Emphasizes the international and regional security threats caused by contemporary security issues in Africa as a continent as well as in the context of individual countries. Employs a case study methodology, which should prove useful in a range of courses on topics including security studies, international relations, comparative politics, military history, and African history. Examines linkages between various security issues, offering an integrated appraisal of how and why these issues impact one another while considering developments, trends, and future prospects. -- !c From publisher's description
