A must-read for NGO workers, students interested in Africa, or interested in the developing world
le 12 mars 2012 - Publié sur Amazon.com
After spending a few months researching, working, and living in South Sudan and South Africa for several months I began to cringe when I heard people talk about "Africa" as if it was a unitary place whose population was relatively homogenous where all the countries experienced the same problems and were basically interchangeable. Many area studies specialists have scoffed at the do-gooder perspective of "Africa" that often treats the massive continent as if it was a single country. Ferguson moves past this academic snobbery and engages a cross-section of African locations, problems, and possibilities from the perspective of the "place-in-the-world" or concept of "Africa" as the broader world has tended to see it - and indeed as the West basically created it, first through colonial policies and then through structural adjustment and similar "neoliberal" or economically "neo-colonial" strategies that largely sidelined popular rule on the continent. Starting from the perspective of a historical juncture at which African people were robbed of their democratic voices at the same time as African states began to be blamed for the problems that had been created through failed globalizing economic policies, Ferguson moves through the social, environmental, and political ramifications of Africa's location in the "shadows" of the value-extracting developed world and of the "shadow" markets and practices that are involved in popular perceptions of Africa. While the five-star rating by no means indicates that I agree with all of Ferguson's perspectives or that I bought all of his arguments, it does mean that from my perspective, this work was very thought-provoking and useful and I would highly recommend it to anyone engaged in NGO work, studying Africa, or interested in the international political and economic order's effects on the developing world. An interesting, very readable, and stimulating book.

For those interested in "Africa," development, or neoliberalism, this book is sure to offer new insights. Brilliant.

It completely reshaped my worldview. A critical look at all of the social-political views we take as common sense. It's not just applicable to Africa, but the whole world.

Great book for those interested in Globalism or the continent of Africa

This book was very interesting and brought up a lot of ideas I hadn't really considered before. Ferguson will challenge everything you think you know about globalism and will help you understand the complexity of the term "global."
