Wars of Plunder

Wars of Plunder

From Angola to Iraq, wars have taken place in resource rich countries full of poor people. 'Wars of Plunder' explores the interplay of natural resources and armed conflicts, and what the international community has tried to do about it. Focusing on key resources - oil, diamonds, and timber - the book argues that resources and wars are linked in three main ways: resource revenues finance belligerents; resource exploitation frequently generates tensions; resource dependence presents major governance challenges.
