An African Peace Process outlines the origins and nature of the conflict in Burundi, discusses the problems of establishing democracy in a region where ethnic conflict has occasioned genocide, traces the peace process in detail and assesses the prospects for the future. The work seeks to illuminate the role played by South Africa since 1999, when Nelson Mandela was invited to serve as mediator between the warring parties.

Foreword Will Marshall and Mark Ribbing Mr. President, your election was a testament to our country’s amazing capacities for self-correction and reinvention. Those national qualities have manifested themselves not a moment too soon.

“[Brown’s] ability to make a complicated subject accessible to the general reader is remarkable.”—Katherine Salant, Washington Post As fossil fuel prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are replacing oil, coal, and natural gas, at a pace and on a scale we could not have imagined even a year ago.

From the BookA brief exposition of the principles of Banking, was all that the writer originally intended to give. In the first draft of the work, the historical sketch was part of a chapter. It has been extended to its present length, from a belief that a tolerably full account of incidents in the History of American Banking would be acceptable to the reader.
