Congo’s Violent Peace; Conflict and Struggle Since the Great African War (E-Book)

  • Regular price $1.00


Despite a massive investment of international diplomacy and money in recent years, the Democratic Republic of Congo remains a conflict-ridden and volatile country, marked by a series of rebellions, failed international interventions, and unworkable peace agreements.
 
 In Congo's Violent Peace, leading Congo expert Kris Berwouts provides the most comprehensive and in-depth account to date of developments since the so-called Congo Wars. Berwouts analyzes such topics as Rwanda’s destructive impact on security in Eastern Congo, the controversial elections of 2006 and 2011, the M23 uprising, as well as Joseph Kabila’s increasingly desperate attempts to cling to power. This will be an essential resource for anyone interested in this troubled, but important, country.
