9780253011787: Identity, Citizenship, and Political Conflict in Africa

Reflecting on the processes of nation-building and citizenship formation in Africa, Edmond J. Keller believes that although some deep parochial identities have eroded, they have not disappeared and may be more assertive than previously thought, especially in instances of political conflict. Keller reconsiders how national identity has been understood in Africa and presents new approaches to identity politics, intergroup relations, state-society relations, and notions of national citizenship and citizenship rights. Focusing on Nigeria, Ethiopia, Cote d'Ivoire, Kenya, and Rwanda, he lays the foundation for a new understanding of political transition in contemporary Africa.

About the Author:

Edmond J. Keller is Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is author of Revolutionary Ethiopia: From Empire to People's Republic (IUP, 1988) and "Trustee for the Human Community": Ralph Bunche and the Decolonization of Africa.

Review:

Clear and lucid. . . . Offers a promising design for careful comparative exploration of a core issue confronting contemporary Africa―the definition of citizenship as a legal and moral issue in a political environment where in most states ethnic attachment coexists with national identity. (M. Crawford Young University of Wisconsin, Madison)

By interrogating theories of citizenship and by looking at the citizenship question in Africa within a historical and comparative perspective, Edmond J. Keller enhances the debate on citizenship and democratization in political science in general, and with respect to African politics in particular. (Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill)
