Abstract:The chapters in this volume establish new understandings of the ways in which violence, political culture and development have interacted in recent African history. The majority of the chapters originate in presentations made to a workshop held on the Danish island of Bornholm from 21 to 25 May 2002. Contents: States of failure, societies in collapse? Understandings of violent conflict in Africa (Preben Kaarsholm); Insurgencies in the shadow of State collapse (William Reno); A societal view on violence and war: conflict & militia formation in eastern Congo (Koen Vlassenroot); Debating the Rwandan genocide (Nigel Eltringham); Darfur: peace, genocide & crimes against humanity in Sudan (Douglas H. Johnson); Legacies of violence in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe (Jocelyn Alexander); The past as contested terrain: commemorating new sites of memory in war-torn Ethiopia (Alessandro Triulzi); Violence as signifier: politics & generational struggle in KwaZulu-Natal (Preben Kaarsholm); War, violence & videotapes: media & localised ideoscapes of the Liberian civil war (Mats Utas); Forced labour & civil war: agrarian underpinnings of the Sierra Leone conflict (Paul Richards).
