Review Text

  • By Mike on November 1, 2002

    This book is a good overview at West Africa's attempts to police itself and solve its own problems. It covers the three ECOMOG deployments to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau (this was written before the as of now potential ECOMOG deployment to Cote d'Ivoire) as well as adding several chapters which analyze all three of the deployments and how they succeded or failed in their missions. Finally, a brief view of how ECOMOG and the rest of the world should cooperate is peppered throughout the book. While small, the book is well researched and intelligently put together. It covers the history of each conflict well, and explores the deployments without getting bogged down in details of combat or the establishment of bases, etc. However, I would not reccomend this book to someone who does not already have a basic understanding of West Africa or else of basic peacekeeping principles from operations in other areas of the world. Without this, much of the details needed to fill in some of the gaps in the book would be missing and would bring down the value of the read. This book is not intended to educate a person on each of conflicts, but rather to provide an overview of how ECOMOG/ECOWAS responded to each, and whether lessons were learned.

    The author provides a good summary of the conflicts in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau. He also does justice to the place and the role of ECOWAS/ECOMOG and of its members. The book clearly points out the successes and failures of all international and regional actors involved in the cruel conflicts that ravaged West Africa during the last few decades.An excellent source of information for anyone interested in topics ranging from multilateralism/regionalism, conflict resolution or West African studies.
