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.'.

'This book is concerned with a phase of political development which has been in progress for about twelve years and has not yet been the subject of much academic study. Throughout what was once the colonial world, new political units are being created following the withdrawal of European control. 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.'
