about

Since the early 1990s, the African Great Lakes region has experienced a series of traumas that have profoundly disrupted its geopolitical, economic, social, and demographic stability. Despite numerous peace accords, political compromises, and international interventions, the region has yet toeliminate the tensions that regularly flare up into hate and violence.Featuring contributions from historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and political scientists, this collection accounts for the omnipresent "metasteses of hatred and violence" that plague the Great Lakes Region. Through a series of detailed case studies, contributors outline the genealogy andhistoricity of violence in the region while remaining sensitive to the singular, contingent experiences of each country.
