Summary
"A Different Kind of War Story takes us to the frontlines of one of the most brutal wars in recent history. The setting is Mozambique during the fifteen-year war of terror that took a million lives - mostly civilian - and completely destroyed homes, crops, hospitals, schools, and even access to water." "Carolyn Nordstrom tells, often in their own words, what Mozambicans experienced and how many not only endured but responded creatively to brutality and unrelenting terror. She shows us how, drawing on a rich repertoire of cultural traditions, Mozambican civilians dealt with devastating violence without perpetuating it and, through their courage and creativity, made the restoration of peace possible." "She compares the conflict in Mozambique with similar conflicts and offers a new way of looking at political violence, showing that just as violence is learned, it can be unlearned."--Jacket
