African Socialisms and Postsocialisms

African Socialisms and Postsocialisms by Richard Fardon
Book DescriptionDuring the 1980s, political and economic shifts of historic proportions dealt fatal blows to socialist regimes systems worldwide as they succumbed to processes of structural adjustment, economic liberalization, and political pluralism. Although scholars have written in depth on the downfall of socialist and communist regimes in the former Soviet Union and East and Central Europe, the impact of these changes on socialist states in Africa was no less monumental. This pathbreaking collection of papers documents the fate of these African postsocialist states.
