Beschreibung

In a follow-up to his ground-breaking Africa Betrayed , George Ayittey takes up the plight of Africa at the end of the twentieth century. As he sees countries like Nigeria go over the edge of economic and social disaster, Ayittey uses his formidable powers of analysis to look at the political economy of Africa, the incursion of foreign powers and the relationship of Africa to the world market. He contrasts the indigenous systems of government that existed in Africa before the arrival of Europeans with the colonial and postcolonial systems that were forced on the country and the effect these systems have had on Africa's inability to move forward. Ayittey's view is dark and, as always, his stinging conclusions will infuriate some and invigorate others. Certain to create controversy, Africa in Chaos is a must-read for fans of Ayittey's earlier work as well as anyone interested in the world economic scene today.

Pressestimmen

'George B.N. Ayittey's robust, provocative Africa in Chaos is typical of the vigorous torrent of scholarship and journalism that has begun to rethink Africa since the end of the 1980s, when old ideologies fell away and old orders began crumbling with them.' - Jeremy Harding, New York Times

'...robust, provocative...Ayittey takes no prisoners.' - The New York Times Book Review

'...Ayittey knows Africa well...a brave and reflective book.' - The Wall Street Journal
