Reporting from Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, and Eritrea, Kaplan examines the factors behind the famine that ravaged the region in the 1980s, exploring the ethnic, religious, and class conflicts that are crucial for understanding the region today. He offers a new foreword and postscript that show how the nations have developed since the famine, and why this region will only grow more important to the United States. Wielding his trademark ability to blend on-the-ground reporting and cogent analysis. Robert D. Kaplan introduces us to a fascinating part of the world, one that it would behooye all of us to know more about.
