The tragic events in Somalia in the 1990s, with the collapse of the Somali state and the failure of humanitarian intervention, have seen scholars analyze how Siad Barre's regime came to an end and how clanism has destabilized Somali society. Until now no extensive study has investigated a major factor in recent Somali evolution: its relationship with Italy over the last century. The Colonial Legacy in Somalia analyzes the consequences of this relationship from colonial administration to the present day. Tripodi examines the motives of Italian imperial expansionism and explains the role Italy played in the formation of the Somali state, why Italy supported Siad Barre's repressive regime and the controversial Italian position during the UNOSOM II. He explains the root of the disagreement between Italy, the US and the UN on the use of force and the Italian approach to peacekeeping in Somalia.
