The American soldier ... by Samuel A Stouffer( Book )

2 editions published between 1949 and 1974 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Volume II deals with combat and its aftermath. It proves that attitudes are directly related to later combat performance. It studies American young men under stress, in ground and air warfare; what made them fight. It analyzes anxiety and fear, group loyalty and formal and informal social controls. In dealing with demobilization, it reveals the inside story of the point system, which, in spite of many criticisms, may have saved the country from a disastrous postwar finale." --Book jacket

Life after violence : a people's story of Burundi by Peter Uvin( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Burundi has recently emerged from twelve years of devastating civil war. Its economy has been destroyed and hundreds and thousands of people have been killed. In this book, the voices of ordinary Burundians are heard for the first time. Farmers, artisans, traders, mothers, soldiers and students talk about the past and the future, war and peace, their hopes for a better life and their relationships with each other and the state. Young men, in particular, often seen as the cause of violence and war, talk about the difficulties of living up to standards of masculinity in an impoverished and war-torn society. Weaving a rich tapestry, Peter Uvin pitches the ideas and aspirations of people on the ground against the theory and assumptions often made by the international development and peace-building agencies and organisations. In doing this, he illuminates both shared goals and misunderstandings. This groundbreaking book on conflict and society in Africa will have profound repercussions for development across the world."--Back cover
Struggles for citizenship in Africa by Bronwen Manby( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hundreds of thousands of people living in Africa find themselves non-persons in the only state they have ever known. Because they are not recognised as citizens, they cannot get their children registered at birth or entered in school or university; they cannot access state health services; they cannot obtain travel documents, or employment without a work permit; and if they leave the country they may not be able to return. Most of all, they cannot vote, stand for office, or work for state institutions. Ultimately such policies can lead to economic and political disaster, or even war. The conflicts in both Ct̥e d'Ivoire and the Democratic Republic of Congo have had at their hearts the very right of one part of the national population to share with others on equal terms the rights and duties of citizenship. This book brings together new material from across Africa of the most egregious examples of citizenship discrimination, and makes the case for urgent reform of the law
