This work is a major investigation of the questions of war and peace in Black Africa (by Africans) with an emphasis on the philosophical, theological and political underpinnings of contemporary African thought and practice. The voices are overwhelming African (the one scholar /contributor who was not born in Africa is a full time resident of Kenya and has a Kenyan family) and the locus of contributors includes Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia and Mozambique. Many of the contributors, as well as the editors, have experienced war first hand and have played honourable roles in rebuilding or re-energising intellectual communities in Africa that have been effected by atrocities, destruction and inter-tribal hatreds. Contained in this work are force arguments and discussions regarding what has happened since de colonisation and what are the possibilities for waging peace not war or violent confrontation.
