This book offers a multidimensional analysis of current African politics. It is also comprehensive in terms of covering various issues and approaches to African politics including discourses on African representation and challenges that await the continent with the arrival of the global age.
Students have been encouraged to use the book as suplementary reading.
This text is a combination of short readings which span the various aspects of discourse concerning contemporary development in Africa and the future ahead. The authors present us with a multidisciplinary approach, which focuses on the active role which African should and can play in dealing with the challenges she faces.
This is an excellent book that covers many of the key issues surrounding Afican politics today. It is incisive in its analysis, and does a very good job at placing the history (and in particular the European involvement in the continent) in context. That it is written by Africans only adds to its value. This will feature at the top of my recoomended texts for the forthcoming year.
