The emergence and disintegration of states, often under conditions of appalling violence, is a problem of primary importance in the world. Chad's long experience of civil strife and foreign intervention illustrates some of the fundamental difficulties involved in the attempt to achieve political stability through armed intervention. Covering Chad's thirty years of civil strife, Limits of Anarchy looks at foreign inervention in Chad's civil war and the effects of such intervention on state construction. The first major study of Chad to appear in English for many years, the book pays particular attention to French, Chadian, and ofhter African political reflections on the problem of Chad.
Book News Annotation:
Nolutshungu (political science, U. of Rochester) investigates how internal and external agents perpetuate civil conflicts and undermine state creation as evidenced by Chad's 30 year civil war. He focuses on the country's emergence from colonialism, and the foreign military interventions by the French and Libya. This is the first book to appear in English about Chad in many years, and its analysis is an important study on the question of foreign intervention and its consequences to the people living in countries devastated by war.
