MEDIA REVIEWS

"African Security Politics Redefined" makes an important contribution to the study of National Security, in general, and to the study of Africa, in particular. Using Africa as the backdrop, Dokken challenges the classical assumptions we use to understand and explain war and security. The weak state itself, rather than the classical assumption of one strong state threatening a neighbor, must be understood as the central security issue in Africa. This volume takes the facts on the ground to help rebuild our theoretical approach to Africa security, an essential task for understanding post-Cold War international security. Then, unlike most volumes dealing with theoretical or analytical categories, it leads to on-the-ground solutions for Africa's growing security challenges." - James J. Hentz, Professor and Chair of the Department of International Studies, Virginia Military Institute
