Africa Afrique Noire: Permanences Et Ruptures

Africa Afrique Noire: Permanences Et Ruptures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This masterful synthesis explains how Africa has come to be a land torn by incessant conflict among its impoverished peoples and countries, a continent living through the gravest social revolution of its history, experiencing the world's fastest demographic growth. Weaving together four major themes—population, political power, the peasantry, and the new growth of the cities—Coquery-Vidrovitch demonstrates the need to recognize the extremely complex heritage of African societies if one is to understand the present or act upon the future of the continent.

Synopsis:

"Coquery-Vidrovitch's book is not merely good; it's marvellous. It represents the finest product of the Annales tradition of structural history."—Immanuel Wallerstein
