And to what extent was ECOMOG's intervention shaped by Nigeria's hegemonic aspirations? Excerpt. Dr. Adekeye Adebajo has been studying conflict in West Africa for the better part of a decade, interspersed with periods of duty for the United Nations (UN) in South Africa, Western Sahara, and Iraq. His in-depth knowledge of the conflicts in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and successively and simultaneously in some cases throughout the 1990s-is rare indeed.

In the first book, Adebajo, who heads the Africa program of the International Peace Academy, looks in great detail at ECOMOG's complex role during the Liberian civil war of 1996. He examines how the war in its various phases reflected the interplay of events, policies, and personalities at the national, regional, and international level, and in particular how Nigeria's ambition to play a dominant role in West Africa affected ECOMOG's development.

This can lead to civil war through the lack of institutional means to regulate or repress factional strife. We test this argument by conducting a statistical analysis. The results indicate that countries in the initial stages of democratization are more than twice as likely to experience civil war as are stable regimes or regimes undergoing a transition to autocracy.
