In Search of Cool Ground

War, Flight and Homecoming in Northeast Africa

by Tim Allen

  • Description
  • Reviews
This volume focuses on population displacement in Northeast Africa.
For many people, flight across an international border occurs repeatedly and is not a uniquely traumatic event. For many more, displacement has occurred within their own countries. The contributors suggest that in situations of such long-term upheaval, notions of flight into refuge and repatriation to a homeland cease to have much meaning. These populations have received minimal assistance from international organizations and have lacked protection from oppressive governments and marauding guerillas. Their plight has largely been ignored.

North America: Africa World Press
"What it does is provide the sort of information and analysis that governments, and agencies, ought to have; and raise the sort of questions that must be answered if the displaced peoples of the region are to be helped specifically and accurately ... It should be required reading in most of the relief, rehabilitation and development offices of northeast Africa -" Patrick Gilkes, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
