Publisher Comments:

This book reviews fifty years of research on politics in Africa. It synthesizes insights from different scholarly approaches and offers an original interpretation of the knowledge accumulated over the years. It discusses how research on African politics relates the study of politics in other regions and mainstream theories in Comparative Politics. It focuses on such key issues as the legacy of a movement approach to political change, the nature of the state, the economy of a location, the policy deficit, the agrarian question, gender and politics and ethnicity and conflict.

Synopsis:

By reviewing fifty rears of research on politics in Africa, this volume offers the most comprehensive text on this subject that has been written in many years. It also shows how research on African politics relates the study of politics in other regions of the world. More specifically, it deals with such key issues as the nature of the state, the informalization of politics, the problems associated with implementing policy, gender and ethnicity issues as well as the challenges to agricultural development on the African continent. The book concludes with a discussion of how these insights could be more effectively used to promote relevant political and policy reforms.
