New conflict research: Roger II of Sicily and conflict in Africa in the 19th and 20th centuries

The Journal of Medieval History presents an article by Eleni Tounta on a Norman Kingdom.  Tounta focuses on Alexander of Telese’s account of Roger II of Sicily.  Tounta examines the use of “terror” by Roger II in dealing with subjects, the way rulers politically dealt with subjects, and the political purpose of the written account.

Settler Colonial Studies has an article by Robert K. Hitchcock, Maria Sapignoli, and Wayne A. Babchuk on conflict between settlers and indigenous peoples in Kenya, and Zimbabwe and northern Botswana in the 19th and 20th centuries.  The authors study the relations between the indigenous hunter-gatherers and the settlers, ranchers, state institutions and private companies.  They examine the extent of physical or cultural genocide, the state’s role in favoring various groups, the strategies used by the indigenous peoples in regards to other groups, and reconciliation of the needs of all the groups involved.
