Ethnicity and Conflict in the Horn of Africa

Edited by Katsuyoshi Fukui and John Markakis

by John Markakis

  • Description
  • Reviews
Exposes the subtle and ambiguous role ethnicity can play in social conflict.
Social conflict is routinely attributed to ethnic differentiation because divinding lines between rival groups often follow ethnic contours; and cultural symbolism has often proved a potent ideological weapon. The purpose of thisbook is to examine the nature of the bond linking ethnicity to conflict in a variety of circumstances. The ten case studies from the Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya are based on primary research by anthropologists and historianswho have long experience of the region.

"I hope to have made clear that this book deserves a wider audience area than specialists. It is an example of creative policy analysis which makes use of the comparative method, and the resurgence in the past decades of neo-classical economic thinking in policy making is of course not limited to Africa. -" Jan Kees Van Donge, JOURNAL OF COMMONWEALTH & COMPARATIVE POLITICS
"The detailed insights and understanding of ethnic motivation described here should be of interest to a wider audience than anthropologists, in fact to all those involved in the fields of aid, development or conflict solution. -" Patrick Gilkes, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
