Can the revolutionary government of Yoweri Museveni’s National Resistance Movement put Uganda back on the road from decay to development?

These informed assessments put the present situation in context. The contributors assembled as Museveni’s guerrillas were launching their final bid for power. They have finalized their contributions in the light of the Museveni government’s initial period of power.

Contributions by Ugandan academics and politicians interlock with those by scholars from across the world who have a concern for Uganda. Historians examine the period of colonialism. There are political studies of the quarter century since independence. There are detailed analyses of the economic realities for the Ugandan government in the period of international debt. The central role of education in national development is given due prominence.

Ali A. Mazrui ends the book by asking ‘Is Africa Decaying?’ The editors have put the consideration of the case of Uganda’s recent history within the context of Africa’s development crisis. Uganda has presented in an aggravated form the crisis common to many other African countries: infrastructural breakdown, mounting foreign debt, military regimes and waves of refugees.

About the Author:

Hölger Bernt Hansen is director of the African Studies Center at the University of Copenhagen.

Michael Twaddle teaches politics and history at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London.

Hansen and Twaddle are the editors of two renowned books, Uganda Now (1988) and Changing Uganda (1991).

Review:

Although the country in recent years has been drawing more than average attention, this has not been paralleled by a commensurate flow of studies on different aspects of Uganda's development path and policy. The collective efforts that Hansen and Twaddle ...fill part of this gap and stand out among the most important sources on Uganda today. - Martin Doornbos in SOCIAL CHANGE
