Description du produit

Revue de presse

'This unusually accessible study of Africa's many histories since 1970 owes its distinctiveness to the author's career. This is, thankfully, not an arid academic tome; it is a thoughtful, passionate account by a senior BBC journalist who spent three decades working on and in Africa. His intimacy with places and people give the book a grittiness that library research never provides.' --Richard Rathbone, Professor of African History, School of Oriental and African Studies, London

'This superb book is the product of many decades of close observation of Africa's past and present by a retired senior BBC World Service journalist. It is genuinely innovative, demonstrating a fine understanding of the role of structure and agency in the continent's 'many histories'. The argument will appeal to an audience seeking a convincing and well-researched account.' --Jack Spence, OBE, Professor of Diplomacy, King's College London

'A provocative and well-argued book, which addresses the importance of continuities as well as change across the vast African continent. In these multiple narratives, African agency is put squarely centre stage. But this is the agency of African elites who, by exploiting inherited structures and weak institutions, have secured and entrenched their own advantage. Given these dynamics, the question remains how far and how fast can broad based socio-economic development be achieved?' --Sue Onslow, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London

Présentation de l'éditeur

Over the last half century, sub-Saharan Africa has not had one history, but many. Histories that have intertwined, converged and diverged. They have involved a continuing process of decolonization and state-building, conflict, economic problems but also progress and the perpetual interplay of structure and agency. This new view of those histories looks in particular at the relationship between territorial, economic, political and societal structures and human agency in the complex and sometimes confusing development of an independent Africa. The story starts well before the granting of independence to Ghana in 1957, with an introductory chapter about pre-colonial societies, slavery and colonial occupation. But the thrust of the book will be looking at Africa in the closing decades of the old millennium and opening ones of the new millennium. While conflicts over liberation from colonial or settler rule, the wars within and occasionally between, new states will be examined in detail, this is a book, too, about the history of the peoples of Africa and their struggle for economic development, against a harsh environment and against the global economic straitjacket into which they were strapped by colonial rule and decolonisation. The importance of imposed or inherited structures, whether the global capitalist system, of which Africa is a subordinate part, or the artificial and often inappropriate state borders and political systems will be examined in the light of the exercise of agency by African peoples, political movements and leaders.
