Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent survey bursting with facts, figures and interesting case studies. Its structure is wonderful. . . . It would be a valuable addition to any undergraduate syllabus. AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEWBR> Alao provides good chapters on solid minerals, oil, and water conflicts with considerable detail on specific situations . . . This book is useful for those wanting a deeper understanding of how an endowment of a natural resource can harm a country rather than be a source of wealth. CHOICE, May 2008 (J.E. Weaver) Here is another important work from one of Africa's finest scholars on Conflict and Security Studies. Natural Resources and Conflict in Africa is a treasure of scholarship and insight, with great depth and thoroughness, and it will put us in Abiodun Alao's debt for quite some time to come. --Amos Sawyer, Co-director, Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University As extensive in information as it is rich in analysis, Natural Resources and Conflict in Africa should help this generation of scholars appreciate the enormity and complexity of Africa's conflicts and provide the next generation with a methodology that breaks down disciplinary boundaries. --Akanmu G. Adebayo, Executive Director, Institute for Global Initiatives, Kennesaw State University
