About the Author:

Tom Young is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Politics at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London.

Review:

The authors deliver a great package of geographical and thematic material. It's useful. - René Pélissier in POLITIQUE INTERNATIONALE The introductory essay is very smart in the best sense. It does a very nice job in a short space of both laying out the main themes in the evolution of scholarship in African politics over the past forty years and of critiquing that literature, and it does so in eloquent and witty prose. - Leonard Villalón, Director of the Center for African Studies at the University of Florida ... the student will find a wealth of empirical material ranging rather even-handedly over four decades of independence ... - Roger Charlton, Glasgow Caledonian University
