    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 144.00

    Sudan, the largest country in Africa, became independent in 1956, to find it had a foot in both the Arab Muslim and the Black African camps.

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 160.00

    Palgrave Macmillan 1995; US$ 205.00

    Forming minorities in five adjacent countries for 74 years, Kurds have been fighting for independence or autonomy, against governments reluctant to accede either.

  • Civil War in Lebanon, 1975-92by Edgar O'Ballance

    Palgrave Macmillan 1998; US$ 160.00

    The sixteen-year long civil war in Lebanon was caused by dissatisfaction over the distribution of political power.

Western intervention was repelled by suicide-bombing attacks. Lebanese Christians... more...

  • Civil War in Bosnia 1992–94by Edgar O'Ballance

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 90.27

    The Muslim President of Bosnia battled for almost two years in a 'war the West could not stop', against Serb and Croat separatism, to preserve its entity, saving its sovereignty, but losing half his territory. Western rivalries and changes of policy, endless negotiations, broken promises and cease-fires, and ethnic cleansing on a barbaric scale, with... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 84.95

    As Soviet Communism dissolved it was replaced in the Caucasus by nationalism enabling the Republics of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to obtain independence: Chechenya is still fighting on. War between Armenia and Azerbaijan started immediately over the Azeri administered Nagorno-Karabakh and Nakhicheven enclaves within Armenia, which has already... more...

  • The Palestinian Intifadaby Edgar O'Ballance

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 84.95
