Madagascar between Peace and Conflict
Madagascar - the fourth largest island in the world
Situated off the southeast coast of Africa, Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world.
Having developed in isolation, the island nation is famed for its unique wildlife.
Traditionally, the Malagasy economy has been based on the cultivation of paddy rice, coffee, vanilla and cloves.
But, despite a wealth of natural resources and a tourism industry driven by its unique environment, the country remains one of the world's poorest, and is heavily dependent on foreign aid.
Since gaining independence from France in 1960, Madagascar has experienced repeated bouts of political instability, including coups, violent unrest and disputed elections.
The most recent coup in 2009 led to five years of political deadlock, international condemnation and economic sanctions.
This book explores information about Peace and conflict on the 4th biggest island of the World - The Madagascar.
