This new and expanded edition of the definitive textbook on African government and politics has been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of the major developments of the 1990s. Adopting a thematic approach and using examples from a very wide range of countries, the book provides detailed coverage of such key issues as the colonial legacy, nationalism and the transfer of power, state and society, political parties and interest groups, administration and the military, revolutionary movements and regimes, regional politics and the Organisation of African Unity, and ideology and development.
