Civil Wars of the World
By

Rating
This unique two-volume reference is the most authoritative, up-to-date resource available for information and data on the most volatile civil wars around the globe since World War II. In the post-World War II era, warfare has broken out in virtually every corner of the globe, and the majority of those conflicts have been internal - nations at war with themselves, fighting over age-old ethnic and religious hostilities, territorial autonomy, political ideologies, the nation's wealth, and more. What are the causes of civil war? Why are they more common in some regions than in others? At a time when historians are devoting more and more research to conflicts within nations, "Civil Wars of the World: Major Conflicts since World War II" is an invaluable addition to the available resources. In two volumes, it ranges around the globe to cover the most volatile and deadly civil wars of the past 60 years, including the bloody impasses in the Middle East; devastating tribal warfare in Africa; Cold War-fuelled conflicts in Eastern Europe and Asia; the seemingly unbreakable cycle of rebellion and repression in some regions of Latin America; and more. "Civil Wars of the World" moves country by country to describe the causes, course, and consequences of internal conflicts within each nation. Coverage includes the historical background of each country, geographic and economic factors, descriptions of rebel groups and governments (e.g., regime type, size of military, capacity), terrorism, foreign and/or intergovernmental organization (IGO) intervention (UN, foreign support for rebels), foreign aid, and prospects for peace.
