Review quote

...Conflict Resolution and Peace Education in Africa will surely become a useful reference tool for the peacemakers and peacebuilders of sub-Saharan Africa. The Journal Of Conflict Studies The volume is a much-needed investigation into the complexities (but also graspable realities) of conflicts in Africa and an accompanying revelation of the specifically African approaches available for resolving the continent's conflicts peacefully. African Studies Review After more than a generation of regaining their sovereignties from the respective European colonial rulers, African states' troubled journey toward unity and stability is still fraught with many bumps in the road. This timely book should be compulsory reading for all who care about Africa and its future. -- G N. Uzoigwe, Mississippi State Universityshow more
