This book begin with large and exotic quote from renowned conflict specialist David Augsburger (1992:62) a Professor of Counselling who compared conflict to sex. "Conflict, to choose a simile, is like sex. The Victorians symbolizes sex as something one must tolerate, not enjoy. Like sex, conflict should be a norm between persons committed to continuity, should also occur with appropriate frequency, be mutually exciting, activate both parties equally to contribute their best selves, and be prolonged until mutually satisfactory climax is possible for each. When it is over, both should feel better as a result. And its energy should empower other areas of life with vitality and creativity. Like sex, conflict is a source of joy, fulfilment, empowerment and celebration." Augsburger posits that like sex, conflict that is constructively managed could be an instrument of social transformation. However if it not properly managed it could also be destructive. Engaging Augsburger, the book argues that African conflicts can be transformed from its destructive tendencies to constructive and developmentally potent instruments. Other aspects of conflict and peace studies in Africa is discussed
