Summary
"Dramatic events in Somalia between June and December 2006 included the rise and fall of a radical Islamic movement, the Islamic Courts Union (ICU), which attracted global attention to the strategic area of the Horn of Africa. In this volume, Shaul Shay analyzes the background and the events that led Somalia to its current situation." "In spite of the ICU's defeat, internal conflict in Somalia between the ICU and the interim government of Somalia (TFG), backed by Ethiopia, is still far from concluded. Shay shows how the internal conflict may spill over into other nations, creating a larger regional theater of Jihad. He also provides some ideas on how to prevent the foundation of a new radical Islamic state that could become a haven of the Islamic terror in the Horn of Africa. This volume is instructive in demonstrating the consequences of destabilization. It will be of interest to foreign policy analysts, regional specialists, and strategists in the war against terror."--Jacket
