In The Great African War, Reyntjens chronicles a decade of instability, violence, war, and extreme human suffering in the Great Lakes region of Africa from 1996, when the war started, to 2006, when elections formally ended the political transition in the DRC. Lamenting the dearth of studies that attempt a global overview (p. 1), he seeks to provide a synthetic overview and in-depth analysis of concurrent developments in the DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda in regional and international contexts, with particular focus on the small Great Lakes region (Rwanda, Burundi, and North and South Kivu,.

MORE BY Nicolas van de Walle. The Great African War: Congo and Regional Geopolitics, 1996-2006.

The last third of the book is dedicated to this endeavor and will be especially valuable to policy-makers, as issues of the ‘First African World War’ and ‘Negotiating the Transition’ are not only informative but unique scholarship. In this project readers are exposed to the totality of conflict: internecine local strife, its historical and cultural roots, the instrumental manipulation that takes place at the state level, conflict entrepreneurs who only exacerbate the devastation, and the well-meaning but often inept international efforts to promote peace.

This book examines a decade-long period of instability, violence and state decay in Central Africa from 1996, when the war started, to 2006, when elections formally ended the political transition in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A unique combination of circumstances explain the unravelling of the conflicts: the collapsed Zairian/Congolese state; the continuation of the Rwandan civil war across borders; the shifting alliances in the region; the politics of identity in Rwanda, Burundi and eastern DRC; the ineptitude of the international community; and the emergence of privatized and criminalized public spaces and economies, linked to the global economy, but largely disconnected from the state - on whose territory the "entrepreneurs of insecurity" function. As a complement to the existing literature, this book seeks to provide an in-depth analysis of concurrent developments in Zaire/DRC, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda in African and international contexts. By adopting a non-chronological approach, it attempts to show the dynamics of the inter-relationships between these realms and offers a toolkit for understanding the past and future of Central Africa.

THis was a book of conflict for me personally! WHile it is serious scholarship, it was almost "too scholarly." The author is NOT a "stephen Ambrose" in terms of easily flowing and keeping my total interest. My main frustration was a lack of quality maps to accompany this great scholarly product, hence it is a pain in the rear to follow some of the time, especially with all of the cross-border activity. I am glad I bought it and I am glad I read it cover to cover, but it was not one of those books you can't put down.... I put it down a number of times to digest this information. The conclusion is pretty top notch.... if I were still in college I'd likely read only that part, but with my trying to learn more about and understand Africa, I read it all. Again, if it had a few more maps of HIGH quality I'd give it 5 stars.....

This book covers the conflict from its beging to the invasion of the Congo. Interesting in reading and very accurate details on the invasion of the Congo. Talks about the political aspect of this war.

The books doesn't work on Kindle app.
Several chapters are skipped whenever I try to flip pages.
I first bought it and returned because of the same problem, and thought it might have been fixed.
However, still the same problem shows.
