This book focuses on the political economy of life and death for ordinary people involved in the illicit extraction and trade of diamonds, coltan, gold from conflict zones in Sub-Saharan Africa and addresses the issues of children and youth in conflict zones; child labour; the networks and economies that these people are part of; and the choices they feel compelled to make based on the agency available to them.
