HIGHLIGHTING and pen notes, otherwise light wear. Solid trade paperback.; "Dr Assefa argues that the sovereign sensitivities of incumbent governments, the risk of international legitimization of insurgents, and the need for reconciliation rather than mere containment demand special mediation efforts. Using the Sudan civil war as a case study, the author reconstructs a successful mediation process through examination of confidential archival materials and through his extensive interviews with the mediators. The conditions that caused the Sudan civil war exist in many developing countries. Therefore this in-depth analysis provides an important insight in assessing and managing similar conflicts."
