Peter Wallensteen′s recent addition to the study of managing conflict, Understanding Conflict .

I have taught a seminar in conflict management for eight years in a row using eight different textbooks, none of them sufficiently analytically developed to provide students with a coherent way to think about managing global conflict.

Putting the word ‘understanding’ in front of the subject matter in the title of a book is always a bold move.

This book provides a comprehensive guide to understanding conflict resolution in today's global world. In the first part, Peter Wallensteen introduces the fields of conflict resolution as they have developed since the end of the Cold War and demonstrates various approaches to conflict analysis and conflict resolution. The core of the book explores three major types of international conflict: inter-state; internal; and state formation conflicts.

Furthermore, under the burden of the conflict all state institutions have collapsed, determining Assad to reform the state at all levels in response to the insurgency.

The eagerly awaited new edition of this highly-popular text continues to be the most lucid and engaging book available on conflict resolution and peace agreements.

Peter Wallensteen, a renowned academic in the field, draws on recent research and examples from around the world, linking the theory of conflict resolution to real-world cases throughout the book.

NEW to the third edition:

• Expanded coverage of the making of peace agreements, including peace and justice, disarmament, and gender-peace connections

• Coverage of the actions of the Obama administration

• Explores the ongoing situations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, the Cote D'Ivoire, Iran, Pakistan and the Arab democratic wave from a conflict resolution perspective

• Updated coverage of the continuing 'war on terror'.

• Attention is given to the comparison of different outcomes, whether negotiated between parties or victory of one over the other with references to Sri Lanka, the Middle East, and Liberia.

Understanding Conflict Resolution remains an essential text for all students, lecturers and researchers of peace and conflict resolution in international relations, global politics and political science.

The fictional island of Henrique, a former Portuguese colony just of the coast of Angola, is the setting for Jamba's short second novel. It's a very simple story of evil, narrated in the form of a confessional memoir by a very confused and unhappy man. Nando Luis takes the reader through the key points in his life, beginning with his upbringing in a Catholic orphanage. From his earliest years he is full of jealousy and hatred for those more talented, handsome, and charismatic than him. Two episodes from those days, one in which he destroys a boy's guitar, and another in which he allows a boy to be punished for stealing a book which Nando himself lost, foreshadow dark streak that he will only worsen as he grows older.

We find him years later, after the Portuguese have left, working as a journalist for the state newspaper. A talented writer, he spends his days dreaming up new ways of extolling the virtues of the dictator/president and the ostensibly Marxist government. At the same time, he sees how the ruling elite has simply switched from the Portuguese to the venal members of one tribe who lord it over the populace and live in luxury. An avid social climber, he manages to find a woman of this tribe to be his girlfriend. However, after a failed revolution, she is arrested as a dissident, and he denounces her in order to be assured of his own safety. Soon after, he is plucked from his newspaper job, and assigned to be an interrogator at a prison camp for enemies of the state. There, he is given the power to truly indulge his dark side, torturing and killing those he's envied his whole life.

Eventually he uneasily realizes that maybe one day the government will fall and he will be punished for the evil he's done. This coincides with the arrival of a Brazilian soap opera to the airwaves of the island, and soon people are naming their babies after characters on the show and even speaking in a Brazilian accent. This is a fairly amusing and interesting interlude in the book, and provides Nando the chance to travel to Brazil, where his assignment is to report on how Brazil isn't actually such a great place. Wandering the streets of Rio, he realizes that he can simply disappear and reinvent himself in this land. Fleeing to Bahia, he is able to to realize a brief time of happiness and looks like he's on the path to a new life, but of course his nature catches up with him. The story asks that age old question of whether evil is something that one is born with, and if so, can it be overcome. It would be easy to blame everything on Nando's being abandoned to the orphanage, and this giving rise to a obsessive need to be loved. However, what causes the need to be loved to mutate into envy and hatred? Jamba offers no easy answers.
Since I read "Patriots" I know that everything that I read from Sousa Jamba is going to have a deep impact. He's defenetly my favourite writer, I like the way he fills the words with emotions and realism, I got into I point where I could see myself as Nando wandering on the streets of Salvador. I finsh the book in a day, because once I started I couldn't stop, I recommended this book to everybody but especially for adolocents
