Beschreibung

An examination of the political instrumentalization of disorder.

Inhaltsverzeichnis

Introduction - transitions and continuities - the question of analysis.
Part 1 The informalization of politics: whither the state?; the illusions of civil society; recycled elites.
Part 2 The re-traditionalization of society: of masks and men - the question of identity; the use and abuse of the irrational - witchcraft and religion; warlords bosses and thugs - the profits of violence.
Part 3 The productivity of economic "failure": the moral economy of corruption; the bounties of dependence; what if Africa refused to develop?. Conclusion - a new paradigm - the political instrumentalization of disorder.

Pressestimmen

... provocative new book... - Martin Woollacott in THE GUARDIAN ...for those interested in international affairs, but lacking detailed knowledge of Africa, if you read only one book about Africa this year it should be this one. Two distinguished scholars of Africa have written a short, lucid and astringent corrective to the lazy complacency of much conventional wisdom about the plight of the continent. Indeed, if all the litany of disaster is true, it is astonishing that anything works in Africa at all. And yet it does. - Gwyn Prins in INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS ...Despite its iconoclastic tenor, however, the book's value is paradoxically as a good summary of the present orthodoxy in the study of African politics - Jan Kees Van Donge in COMMONWEALTH & COMPARATIVE POLITICS
