About this book
Comprehensively revised for this new edition, this popular textbook has been extended to assess the progress made by states - mostly weakened in capacity and crippled by debt - in moving towards democratic pluralism and a market economy. Using examples and case studies drawn from different parts of Africa, the book investigates both theoretically and in considerable empirical detail a range of institutions as well as key issues including decentralisation, the role of women, the tragedy of Rwanda, and the impact of a liberated South Africa upon African states to the north.
