This book examines the international factors such as enforced democracy and globalization that have affected the Great Lakes region of Africa. The horrendous consequences in terms of violence and human suffering of the events in this area have been exhibited in the media, however news coverage after 1994 was at times unreliable. This book takes a look at life since then, adopting an independent, and on occasion controversial perspective. Beginning with an analysis of Rwanda since it was there, within the context of geopolitical change after 1989, that set the region ablaze through to a contemporary evolution in Congo, explaining war and regress, in the context of globalization and deomocratic reform.
