Eritrea's External Relations
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There are few countries as misunderstood, or even as unknown, as Eritrea. The beleaguered nation encapsulates some of the region's most pressing issues: it has an undemocratic power structure, a low level of socioeconomic development, a highly militarized political system given increasingly to armed adventurism, and the tendency to disregard international opinion in the search for local solutions. Yet Eritrea is becoming increasingly important to the stability of sub-Saharan Africa. This volume analyzes the nature of Eritrea's foreign relations, both regionally and in the wider international arena.
