“Reyntjens has written a perceptive account of a war whose origins lie in the advanced decay of the Congolese state at the end of Mobutu’s 32-year reign and in the ethnic conflict in neighboring Burundi and Rwanda. Reyntjens delineates the geopolitical motivations of the different players and the diplomatic and military relations between them.”
Nicolas van de Walle, Foreign Affairs

"This is a compellingly organized volume on central Africa...This excellent work holds lessons far beyond the continent for conflict-resolution experts. Highly recommended."
-CHOICE, M. D. Crosston, College of Arts and Sciences

"This superb history of the recent wars in Africa's Great Lakes region is essential reading for students of conflict in Africa. Reyntjens has tremendous perspective on this key African subregion, having ably conducted and presented research on the area for over thirty years. The author has a considerable gift for condensing extremely complex identities and relations into a highly readable text. For relative neophytes to the study of central Africa, a better introduction could not be had; for the old hands, this study provides an invaluable aide-memoire to some well known events, and a great deal of fresh analysis of events that we are only gradually coming to understand." - John Clark, Florida International University, International Journal of African Historical Studies

"Filip Reyntjens... has written an intelligent and well-structured book. The Great African War provides a very factual and dense account of the violent evolution of Zaire―the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1997―in its regional setting, from the first war of 1996 to the general elections of 2006.... Reyntjens presents an orderly, in-depth analysis of a very complex and multifaceted episode in this region’s troubled history." - Steven Schouten, International Affairs

Über das Produkt

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 (DRC). It offers a toolkit for understanding the past and future of Central Africa.

Serious scholarship here 3. Juli 2013
Von Maggot - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.....
Great for understanding the first part of conflict 29. März 2014

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.

I hate it.... 13. Oktober 2013
Von Munkyung Park - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.
