The Colonial Legacy in Somalia: Rome and Mogadishu : from Colonial Administration to Operation Restore Hope

Front Cover
Macmillan Press, 1999 - History - 219 pages
Finding that the discussion of the transformation of the north African country from state to clans is missing a vital factor, Tripodi (international studies, Nottingham Trent U.) analyzes relations between Somalia and Italy over the last century, and its consequences from colonial administration to the present. He examines the motives of Italian imperial expansionism and explains the role Italy played in the formation of the Somali state, why Italy supported Siad Barre's repressive regime, and the controversial Italian position during the UNOSOM II.
