Product Description

Ali A. Mazrui is arguably the leading African theorist on the role of violence in human affairs. This collection of essays illustrates his range. The spectrum of violence is from military coups and terrorism to nuclear proliferation, from individual assassinations to civil wars. Mazrui has lived in conflict-prone African countries, experienced life under military rule, and personally discussed problems of stability with leaders who have ranged from Nelson Mandela and Muammar Qaddafi to Idi Amin and Robert Mugabe. This volume of essays is a powerful illustration of both Mazrui’s theoretical insights and his practical experience. No wonder he was the first to coin the term Pax-Africana on the eve of Africa’s independence half-a-century ago.

The potential audience for the book includes peace studies programs, courses on African politics, political Islam, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and global North-South relations

Ali A. Mazrui is Director of the Institute of Global Studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton and Senior Scholar in Africana Studies at Cornell University, Ithaca. Mazrui has lectured widely on political Islam in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, North America and the Orient. He has served in leadership positions in such Muslim institutions as the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy in Washington, D.C., the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies in England, and at the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. Dr. Mazrui has published more than twenty books, hundreds of scholarly articles, and was the author and narrator of the award-winning BBC/PBS television series, The Africans: A Triple Heritage (1986).
