Summary
This book analyzes crucial episodes in the recent political history of the Somali people. In their complicated dialogue with "modernity", the Somalis illustrate the extremes of modern African statehood. In contemporary "Somalia" which, for twenty years has not been a functional political reality, they have produced a failed state par excellence. In the neighboring and smaller Somaliland Republic, however, they have achieved what is widely regarded as one of the more effective states in the continent. Ironically while dysfunctional Somalia, despite its collapse, is still internationally recognized, functional Somaliland has yet to receive formal recognition--Publisher's description
