Summary:
Africa finds itself at the centre-stage of world politics in the 21st Century. To truly determine its rising influence and role in world affairs would mean unravelling the politics of imperialism, the Cold War and globalisation. Going beyond Euro-American perspectives, this book presents a comprehensive study of Africa and its role in global politics. Africa in World Affairs: -Closely examines the transition of Africa in its colonial and post-colonial phases; - Explores the intellectual history of modern Africa through liberation struggles, social movements, leaders and thinkers; - Investigates the continent's relationships with former colonial powers such as Britain, France, and Portugal; untangles complexities of French neo-colonialism and sheds light on the role of the superpower such as the USA and major and rising powers like China and India; - Highlights complex and wide-ranging diversities of the region, and the ways in which it continues to negotiate with issues of modernity, racism and globalisation. A core text on Africa and the world, this book will be indispensable for students of African studies, politics and international relations, and history. It will also be a must-read for policy-makers, diplomats and government think tanks--Provided by publisher.
