Review:

"An excellent, uniquely valuable addition to the literature, rich in detail and dealing with profoundly significant issues. The collection will be of immense interest to Africanists and of interest not to Africanists alone. It makes a highly distinctive contribution to the genre of transition studies in the democratisation literature." Professor Peter Burnell Department of Politics and International Studies at Warwick University, UK"

Book Description HSRC Press, South Africa, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was a widely dominant perception until the early 1990 s that African rulers do not vacate their office alive. But even in the brutal reality of African politics, transition takes place and different former presidents have dealt with how to maintain power and privilege very differently. With new case studies examining the post-presidential years of the iconic Mandela in South Africa, Daniel arap Moi in Kenya, Nyerere in Tanzania, Rawlings in Ghana, Charles Taylor in Liberia, as well as the experience of Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Malawi, and Nigeria, this volume examines the dilemmas which demand for presidential transitions impose upon incumbent rulers and analyses the relationships which are evolving between new regimes and their predecessors. The contributors discuss the hybridal political systems that exist in post-independence Africa; the role allotted to or pursued by former African presidents; transitional politics and justice, and political stability. The book stimulates careful further observation and analyses concerning progress in this contested arena of institutionalised political power in Africa. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780796921208
