Summary note
"Natural resources like oil and minerals are at the heart of many conflicts around the world. Living in Fear explores the general relation between wars, conflicts and natural resources, focusing in particular on two African countries: Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and South Sudan. Both countries have gone through some of the bloodiest wars and conflicts in recent decades in the world, such that peace efforts have been made at the UN level to try to minimize the conflict situations. This book aims to provide a succinct but comprehensive overview of both conflicts and show their relation with natural resources."--Publisher description.
