Anyone who needs to sort quickly through Africa's catalog of contemporary conflicts, from Western Sahara to Mozambique to the Horn, will welcome this concise yet comprehensive update (to late 1993). Organized to supplement basic international relations texts, there are chapters on the domestic and external causes of African wars, costs and consequences, changing contexts in the post-Cold War world, and the prospects for positive international intervention. The commentary is well informed, and there are helpful maps and tables.
