The post-Cold War international environment brought on a series of internal conflicts that were curiously "nonmilitary," resulting in a myriad of opinions and models for a new world. This volume offers another perspective on these conflicts, exploring "contemporary" internal conflicts and defining them as the "more or less systematic murder and terrorizing of civilian populations." The author argues that these new internal wars are a sufficiently different phenomenon to warrant worldwide intellectual and policy attention. He discusses the prototypes of Somalia, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Georgia, Tajikistan, and Sri Lanka in his analysis.
