"This is a very timely book. It examines questions which first arose in Liberia and which have not yet been fully answered: what can regional organizations contribute to the international community's efforts to maintain peace and security? and what should be the division of labour
between them and the United Nations? The book's six revealing case studies are all from Africa. But the conclusions which the authors so lucidly draw from them are of world-wide relevance." - Marrack Goulding

"This book presents an excellent and compelling analysis of the varied factors and variables that bedevil the resolution of African conflicts.The contributors to this volume have been able to tackle the opportunities and failures affecting the relationship between the United Nations and regional and sub-regional organizations in their joint efforts to solve regional conflicts. Policymakers, scholars and experts on Africa will be obliged to consult this volume to gain a proper understanding of the requirements for sound public policy." - James O. C. Jonah, Former Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs at the United Nations, Former Minister of Finance and Development of Sierra Leone
