The site of genocide in Rwanda, recurrent cycles of communal massacre, deepening poverty, state fragmentation, and massive displacement of civilians, is Africa's Great Lakes region finally moving away from decades of decay and destruction, or is it fated to remain mired in interminable strife? The authors of ""Security Dynamics in Africa's Great Lakes Region"" explore the sources of conflict in the region, as well as local and international attempts to rebuild political authority and reduce the scale of human suffering.
