The end of the Cold War did not result in the long awaited, lasting peace - it instead unleashed several old and new conflicts with many attempts at policing with economic, institutional, moral and legal means. The reality of current conflict hot spots in the world is stark: civil wars, wars against rebel groups and Islamists, popular uprisings, and wars against narcotic groups. The subject of this book is very topical in current security studies on the African continent as it shies away from the contemporary model, instead focusing the attention on philosophy, theology and the politics of confrontation.
