Author Name:Woodward, Peter


The most dangerous corner of Africa is its north-east corner where instability reigns and terrorism thrives on the antagonisms of all of its governments. 
This region, comprising Ethiopia, Sudan and now South Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea, and stretching to include Kenya and Uganda, is a pivotal geopolitical pressure point in world politics.
It stands at the hinge of Africa and the Middle East.
It was of vital interest to the superpowers during the Cold War and remains, in the post-Cold War period, a key area in international relations and a major source of mineral wealth, while its sufferings have been described as a scar on the conscience of humanity.
But seemingly endemic political chaos, failed states, terrorism and international piracy have dealt a death blow to the ambitions of the US and her allies in the international community to further a New World Order of liberal democracy.
Peter Woodward's book is essential reading for Africa and international relations specialists, including policy planners.

  •     OK
  •     Good overview and general description of the various issues the African horn has been battling with for a long time. In my view the book is a little bit to focussed on historic events. I had hoped the book would have paid greater attention to current events and discussing ongoing issues rather than reflecting on history. Its not a good book if you are looking at the latest on what is happening on the African Horn. Its how ever a very good introduction if you are new to the dynamics and issues on the African Horn.
