"African states appears to be under the spell of insecurity and underdevelopment due to the scourge of conflict, compounded by increasing political disorder, economic downturns and dysfunctional socio-cultural and political structures in the face of global transformation and compelling demands to meet the challenges of change.

This book proffers critical solutions to the lingering problems and the policy opinions to shape and secure Africa's future in the global arena. It is an explicatory tour, an incisive strategic analysis of the world's political outlook and Africa's security imperatives to bring about sustainable peace, meaningful democracy, justice, equitable development and advantageous global presence in a world of unsettling scenarios. Being a comprehensive overview of the factors that matter in the 21st century regarding governance, conflict and peace development in Africa and the region's role in world politics, it is mandatory reading for anyone concerned about the future of Africa in a rapidly changing world."
