Africa in World Politics by John W. Harbeson

Book Description

Top contributors in the field of African politics write on the issues concerning this marginalized continent and its relationship to the global political and economic orders. In this fully revised edition, top scholars in African politics address the effects that major currents in Africa and world politics have upon each other and explore the ramifications of this interconnection for contemporary theories of international and comparative politics.The fourth edition focuses on issues of reforming and strengthening states and their economies in sub-Saharan Africa. The nation-state as we know it is a legacy of European rule in Africa, and the primacy of the nation-state remains a bedrock of most contemporary theories of international relations. Yet in the fifth decade of Africa's independence, this colonial inheritance has been challenged as never before by state weakness, internal and inter-state conflict, and internal and external demands for economic and political reform, with potentially far-reaching implications. Including new readings on the AIDS crisis in Africa and the regional war on terrorism, this text remains an invaluable resource for students of African and world politics.This volume of contributed readings was developed to fill a specific gap in textbooks on contemporary Africa - to provide a volume that clearly illustrates for students the influence of African politics and international relations upon each other.
