''Isiaka Badmus provides a thorough, detailed account of how the African Union became involved in peace support operations, and how those missions evolved. This book will become the standard reference on the AU's seminal missions in Burundi, Somalia and Darfur, and how the AU has come to play an integral role in peacekeeping in Africa.'' - Alexander de Waal, Executive Director of the World Peace Foundation
