Ending Civil War: Rhodesia and Lebanon in Perspective
I.B.Tauris, 30 set 2004 - 322 pagine
Rejecting approaches that emphasize economics or ethnicity, this investigation of the wars in Rhodesia and Lebanon sets out the complex political dynamic--within and between belligerents, civilian populations and neighboring states--that eventually brought each to an end. Above all, it demonstrates the robustness of local agendas in civil wars and the difficulties outsiders face in brokering settlements. With intervention in ""failed states"" so high up the international agenda, the message is one that scholars and policy-makers can ill afford to ignore.
