    1. This book was very interesting and gave a great insight into the politics of Africa. Originally I only intended to read the sections dedicated to Somalia and piracy but the author made the work interlink and it was easy to follow, so I read the entire book. The book was particularly useful for my dissertation and vastly improved my own knowledge on conflict in the HOA.
