ALEX DE WAAL is Executive Director of the World Peace Foundation and a Research Professor at The Fletcher School, Tuft s University.
"The foremost Western analyst of the Horn of Africa, Alex de
Waal provides a superb account of the region's highly
interdependent and often troubling politics. He combines an
anthropologist's attention to local contexts with a political
economist's analysis of transnational entanglements of markets,
power struggles, and war. Often disturbing, even though de Waal
seeks reasons to be hopeful, but a must read."
Craig Calhoun, London School of Economics and Political Science "An outstanding book. The author's knowledge of the topic and region is unrivalled, and enlivened and enlightened by his personal experience and anecdotes"
