Managing ethnic conflict in Africa : pressures and incentives for cooperation by Donald S Rothchild( )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethnic conflict in Africa is reaching critical levels. Governments are being toppled. National economies are collapsing. And the potential for civil unrest--even violent encounters--throughout the continent threatens to engulf not only Africa, but much of the world." "Africa's salvation depends on the development and implementation of effective institutions of ethnic conflict management. In this book, Donald Rothchild traces the history of ethnic unrest in Africa, analyzes the successes and failures of attempts at conflict resolution in different countries, and offers comprehensive ideas for successful mediation. Book jacket."--Jacket
Africa in world politics by John W Harbeson( )

36 editions published between 1991 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fully revised edition, top scholars of African politics address major currents in Africa and Africa's relationship to the global political and economic orders. The fourth edition focuses on issues of reforming and strengthening states and their economies in sub-Saharan Africa. The nation-state as we know it as a legacy of European rule in Africa, and the primacy of the nation-state remains a bedrock of most contemporary theories of international relations. Yet in the fifth decade of Africa's independence, this colonial inheritance has been profoundly affected both by state weakness and by prospects for real economic and political reform, by continuing marginalization globally and by evolving new relationships with the world community. Including new readings on the AIDS crisis, the regional war on terrorism, and Africa's growing economic engagement with China, this text remains an invaluable resource for students of African and world politics."--Jacket
The international spread of ethnic conflict : fear, diffusion, and escalation by David A Lake( Book )

18 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa-US relations : strategic encounters by Donald S Rothchild( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflecting the debate between state-centered and human-security approaches to security strategy, Africa-US Relations explores the interactions between the US and African countries in a wide spectrum of key arenas. The authors range from considering such traditional security issues as peacekeeping and terrorism to concerns with HIV/AIDS, environmental degradation, aid policies, and international trade. Their contributions place in sharp relief the differences in inner logic and preferred consequences among alternative strategic perspectives - as well as the implications of those differences for policy choices."--Jacket

Sovereignty as responsibility : conflict management in Africa by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors present a framework that should guide both national governments and the international community in discharging their respective responsibilities. They develop broad principles by examining identity as a potential source of conflict, governance as a matter of managing conflict, and economics as a policy field for conflict prevention. Considering conflict management, political stability, economic development, and social welfare as functions of governance, they also develop strategies, guidelines, and roles for its responsible exercise. Approaching conflict management from the perspective of the responsibilities of sovereignty provides a framework for evaluating government accountability. It proposes standards that guide performance and sharpen tools of conflict prevention rather than simply making post hoc judgments on success or failure. The authors demonstrate that sovereignty as responsibility is both a national obligation and a global imperative

The Precarious balance : state and society in Africa by Naomi Chazan( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2019 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since independence, the political institutions of many African states have undergone a process of consolidation and subsequent deterioration. Constrained by external economic dependency and an acute scarcity of economic and technical resources, state officials have demonstrated a diminished capacity to regulate their societies. Public policies are agreed upon but ineffectively implemented by the weak institutions of the state. Although scholars have analyzed the various facets of state-building in detail, little systematic attention has been given to the issue of the decline of the state and mechanisms to cope with state ineffectiveness in Africa. This book focuses especially on the character of the postcolonial state in Africa, the nature of and reasons for state deterioration, and the mechanisms and policies for coping with state malfunction. Scholars from Africa, the United States, Europe, and the Middle East combine a broad understanding of African political processes with expertise on specific regions. Their analytic and comparative perspective provides a comprehensive and timely treatment of this vital and heretofore neglected theme in African politics

Sustainable peace : power and democracy after civil wars( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can leaders craft political institutions that will sustain the peace and foster democracy in ethnically divided societies after conflicts as destructive as civil wars? Under turbulent conditions the leaders of ethnic groups, governments, and international organizations face the challenge of designing political arrangements that can simultaneously meet the tests of equal representation, democratic accountability, effective governance, and political stability. At critical junctures in the transition from intense (often violent) conflict, power-sharing arrangements may offer a compromise acceptable to most ethnic elites. Philip G. Roeder and Donald Rothchild find that these short-term accommodations come with high longer-term costs: the very institutions that provide a basis to end a conflict in an ethnically divided country may hinder the consolidation of peace and democracy over the longer term. The contributors to Sustainable Peace examine institutional settlements in Ethiopia, Lebanon, India, and South Africa as well as the Soviet successor states, south Asia, central Africa, west Africa, and the Balkans. Roeder, Rothchild, and most of the contributors conclude that power-dividing, rather than power-sharing, solutions are more likely to result in durable political compacts and peace
Africa in world politics : the African state system in flux( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa in World Politics addresses the effects of major currents in Africa and global politics upon each other and the ramifications of these interrelationships for contemporary theories of international and comparative politics. This third edition focuses on the changing state system in sub-Saharan Africa. The nation-state as we know it is a legacy of European rule in Africa, and the primacy of the nation-state remains a bedrock of most contemporary theories of international relations. Yet in the fourth decade of Africa's independence, this colonial inheritance is being challenged as never before with potentially far-reaching implications for Africa, and for world politics as a whole. The authors examine a variety of changing state systems on the continent, ranging from the rapidly failing Western-style states (Rwanda, the Sudan, and others), to new states emerging from old ones (Eritrea from Ethiopia), to states becoming radically decentralized (Ethiopia, Uganda)."--BOOK JACKET
