Getting Somalia wrong? : faith, war and hope in a shattered state by Mary Harper( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Getting Somalia Wrong?, the first comprehensive account of the chaos engulfing much of the country, shows that this 'failed state' is far from being a failed society, as alternative forms of business, justice and local politics still flourish. As Mary Harper argues, until the international community starts to 'get it right', the consequences will be devastating
