UK Publication Date

This book critically examines the content of British policy towards Sierra Leone from the outbreak of conflict there in 1991 to its official conclusion in 2001. It attempts to find answers to why Britain's New Labour government pursued a more proactive policy in Sierra Leone than its Conservative predecessors. This is done by means of traditionalist but especially transformationalist theoretical approaches. Analysis is made of the influence of major international organisations on British policy towards the Sierra Leone conflict as well as the impact of other important states. As foreign policy is not created in a vacuum, analysis is also made of the impact of the domestic setting, especially bureaucratic institutions.

Here's what you say about us...

The Author: Michael S. Kargbo received his Ph.D. on British foreign policy and the conflict in Sierra Leone from the University of Birmingham's Centre of West African Studies. His Ph.D. thesis won the prestigious R E Bradbury Memorial Prize awarded by the School of Historical Studies. He holds graduate degrees in International Relations and Development Studies, and International Tourism Policy from the universities of East Anglia and North London respectively, and a BA in Social Sciences from Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone.

That said, the book is to be commended for admirably pulling together the strands of policy which led to what is now regarded as one of Tony Blair's few successes in his proactive foreign policy. It has rightly been awarded the prestigious R. E. Bradbury Memorial Prize by the School of Historical Studies. (Peter Penfold, The Round Table)
