Long Description
Somalia is a comprehensively failed state, representing a threat to itself, its neighbors, and the wider world. In recent years, it has become notorious for the piracy off its coast and the rise of Islamic extremism, opening it up as a new "southern front" in the war on terror. At least that is how it is inevitably presented by politicians and in the media. In Getting Somalia Wrong?, Mary Harper presents the first comprehensive account of the chaos into which the country has descended and the United States' renewed involvement there. In doing so, Harper argues that viewing Somalia through the prism of al-Qaeda risks further destabilizing the country and the entire Horn of Africa, while also showing that though the country may be a failed state, it is far from being a failed society. In reality, alternative forms of business, justice, education, and local politics have survived and even flourished. Provactive and eye-opening, Getting Somalia Wrong? shows that until the international community starts to "get it right," the consequences will be devastating, not just for Somalia, but for the world.

The "Quit Application" menu item wasn't working so that got fixed. On the scan results screen, the quit menu item was only returning you to the startup screen. Now it actually quits. We also changed the label for that menu item from "Quit / Exit" to "Quit Application" to be more clear.

We added the ability to "Share" scanned data. If you can something and we can bring you to a product page, when you share you will be sharing a link to the product page. When you scan something and we don't know what to do with it (not a product barcode) we let you share the raw scan.
