Behind the Flames of Terrorism: Reparations versus retribution

  • Anthropology
  • Political Science


Ali A. Mazrui, Albert Luthuli and Andrew D. White argue that international terrorism is one more area of intermingling between the policies of the Middle East and the politics of Africa. Before the end of colonialism and the end of apartheid in Africa, what was described as ‘terrorism’ was as common in Africa as in the Middle East. They explore why, since the collapse of political apartheid in the 1990s, the term ‘terrorism’ has more narrowly been focused on the politics of the Middle East.
