Description

Wars of secession, ethnic wars, rebellions, mutinies, and Congolese-led invasions have been part of the political landscape of the Democratic Republic of Congo since the country became independent in 1960. Why? And what can we learn from this seemingly unending series of internal conflicts? Emizet Francois Kisangani explores these fundamental questions within a rigourously systematic and uniquely comprehensive framework. Looking closely at five decades of civil wars in the DRC, Kisangani finds ample evidence to challenge popular paradigms. His focus on the politics of exclusion and his attention to both the micro- and macro processes of the wars provides an analytical lens through which not only the nature of civil wars, but also Congo's politics more broadly, are brought into clearer focus.show more
