AZEVEDO, MARIO J.
Roots of Violence: A History of War in Chad
(Amsterdam: Gordon and Breach Publishers, 1998) 9056995839. . 228 x 151 mm; laminated wrappers; pp. xii + (ii) + 202, incl. index. Very good condition. "Roots of Violence: A History of War in Chad examines the conflict and organized violence in the former French colony of Chad, the fifth largest country in Africa. Mario Azevedo clarifies the role of ancient and modern strategies of organized violence and warfare in Chad, from both historic and contemporary perspectives. He combines written, primary and archival sources with secondary works, primarily in French and English, as well as oral data he collected during his visits to Chad in 1974, 1981, 1984 and 1995. Roots of Violence explores not only how violence has permeated Chad and become an almost intrinsic part of central-eastern Sudanic society, but also how foreign interference, from centuries ago to the present, has exacerbated rather than eased violence. Although Dr. Azevedo's main objective is to examine present-day Chad, this book also provides comprehensive and analytical discussion of Chad's violent past. In this way, the author goes beyond merely blaming the unwise ethnic policies of François Tombalbaye or Felix Malloum - thus demythologizing many assumptions held by scholars and non-scholars alike. Roots of Violence contributes to the growing literature on the roots of conflict and resolution in the region, and helps fill prevailing research gaps on Chad and Equatorial Africa.".

BOL, AHER AROP
The Lost Boy
(Cape Town: Kwela Books, 2009) 9780795702785. . 214 x 136 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 189. Slightest curl to wrappers. Very good condition. "In 1987, a small Sudanese boy is carried into Panyido Refugee Camp, Ethiopia, on the shoulders of his uncle. He doesn't know why he is there, and he doesn't know where his parents are. He doesn't know if he will ever see his family again. So begins Aher Arop Bol's story - an epic quest for survival, education, family and meaning - and the journey that will see him flee Sudan as a young child, and return many years later, via Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Parentless, but not without friends; discriminated against, but not without ambition; alone, but not without hope - Aher's story is a testament to the incredible will of one boy who refused to remain lost.".

DALLAIRE, [LIEUTENANT-GENERAL] ROMÉO, WITH [MAJOR] BRENT BEARDSLEY
Shake Hands with the Devil. The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
(London: Arrow Books, 2004) 0099478935. . 195 x 128 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xviii + (iv) + 562, incl. index; maps. A little foxing. Very good condition. "An award-winning international sensation, Shake Hands with the Devil is a landmark contribution to the literature of war: a remarkable tale of a soldier's courage and an unforgettable parable of good and evil. It is also a stinging indictment of the petty bureaucrats who refused to give Dallaire the men and the operational freedom he needed to stop the killing. 'I know there is a God', Dallaire writes, 'because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists and therefore I know there is a God.' ".

HEISLER, HELMUTH
Urbanisation and the Government of Migration the Inter-Relation of Urban and Rural Life in Zambia;...
(London, C. Hurst & Company, 1974). . Dustwrapper, rubbed, pp. xi + 166, tables. Edges very slightly foxed. 'For the establishment of capitalism and the creation of wealth in Central Africa, labour mobility was as much a prerequisite as mineral wealth. It brought in its wake the dislocation of tribes but has made possible the urban-capitalist society which determines the form of the Republic of Zambia. The rural areas had been the heart of the country in the early days of colonialism, but the position had been completely reversed by 1970. The approach of the colonial government of the territory to the country's social problems was originally to regard the pre-capitalist societies as their main concern; they deplored the necessity of allowing the centres of capitalism to suck in themost virile men from the tribes. But this approach slowly swung round to conceiving the pre-capitalist societies as the periphery - the satellites of the capitalist-urban society which would propel the country into the twentieth century.'.

NEPAD has to be evaluated on the basis of close analysis of its substantive proposals and their implications.".

A few of these have inherited the territory of ancient states, but in most places the new entity is an artificial one, defined mainly by the accidents of European diplomacy during the phase of colonization.'

MARTIN, DAVID
General Amin
(London: Faber and Faber, 1974). . 8vo; original burgundy boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 254, incl. index; plates; maps. Dustwrapper very slightly edgeworn, and spine panel sunned; top edge of lower board scuffed; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; some foxing. Good to very good condition. "The news that Dr. Milton Obote, President of Uganda, had been deposed by General Idi Amin on 25th January 1971 was greeted optimistically by many countries in the West. Since then Amin's fame has spread like wildfire as the incredulous world receives his increasingly outrageous pronouncements. But the smiling, childish image which the media have indulgently created for the figure who rose from army cook to President of a modern nation state conceals the qualities of one of the most feared dictators of this century. Even before independence, Idi Amin had acquired a record of brutality, but since coming to power ... the death toll in Uganda has mounted appallingly... This book is a study of the historical background to the 1971 coup, the reasons why Amin had to seize power in order to survive, and the devastating results of the take-over for Uganda.".

MULHOLLAND, STEPHEN
Another Voice
(Johannesburg: Hodder & Stoughton, 1998) 1919749098. . 8vo; original blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine and upper board; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. viii + 168. Dustwrapper very slightly curled and rubbed; trace of spotting to top edge. Near fine condition. "For almost four decades Stephen Mulholland's restless and inquiring mind has entertained and infuriated South African readers. Almost alone in South African journalism he championed the cause of free markets and free enterprise in the early 1960s and he continues to speak out against policies, such as affirmative action, which he believes will be detrimental to the economy and to South Africans in general. This collection of weekly columns in the Sunday Times covers a scintillating range of topics with verve and insight. Mulholland's interests range from sport to education, from business to foreign affairs, from American economics to South African politics and from management techniques to the personality of Tony Blair. Many will disagree with him, but no reader will be bored.".

He argues that the overall answer lies in development of economic resources and manpower, but each country must be treated individually, and problems must be resolved in the context of Africa's unique environment and challenges.".

OBUDHO, R.A. (GUEST EDITOR)
Regional Development Policies and Planning in Africa
(Nagoya, Japan, United Nations Centre for Regional Development, 1988). . Small quarto, card wraps, little scuffed, pp. xvi + 265. 'In recent years, there has been an increasing concern with regional development policies and planning in Africa, in the context of deteriorating or stagnating ational economies. The continued high rates of rural-urban migration, low rates of job creation in the formal sector, a declining local resource base for the supply of facilities and infrastructure, and the deterioration of services have contributed to fiscal distress, stagnatin, and unemployment i the countries. The literature shows that decentralization policies have so far been mainly theoretical; even the role of regions in planning and development has been minimal or nonexistent. Planning and development activities have been excessively centralized. This RRD special issue provides perspectives on urban and regional planning in Africa in the context of socioeconomic change, as well as on the specific problems confronting the regions and the policies to resolve the problems. The collection consists of eight articles and twenty-one comments by specialists in a variety of fields-geography, housing, rural development, rural sociology, and ruban and regional planning..

"Mort Rosenblum and Doug Williamson give a uniquely personal account of an ever-changing Africa, from the disappearing Bushmen and struggling wildebeest of the Kalahari to the Ethiopian famine and the political powder keg of South Africa. They examine the particular problems of each country in turn, building a thought-provoking panorama of traditional climatic failures aggravated by corruption, incompetence and mismanagement, both inside African governments and in international aid organisations and donor countries; by land degradation and booming population; and more recently by the growing threat of AIDS. This is a vivid, fascinating and poignant study of the rich diversity and great beauty of Africa, and the dignity and spirit of its troubled people.".

"Withdrawn" and "Sold" ink stamps to half-title, otherwise near fine. "The number of international migrants, asylum-seekers and clandestine migrants is estimated at 120 million worldwide. It is believed that a further 2 million join this figure each year. To put it differently, 1 in every 114 people is displaced in the world today. Between 3 and 8 million illegal aliens are estimated to be within the borders of South Africa. 'Of Myths and Migration' seeks to explore the causes and effects of population displacement and seeks to arrive at policy-relevant conclusions. It investigates one aspect of the global migration crisis in a specific context - that of illegal immigration into South Africa - and places this in a broader regional security framework.".
