In the first part of this book, Bongmba argues that the African crisis has resulted from the abuse of political power, prodigal economic activities, and the proliferation of violence. He blames postcolonial leadership for a lack of political will for this crisis and argues that African states must reform their economies, establish democratic rule, practice good governance, create a space for civil society, and institute a renaissance of politics and values. In the second part, Bongmba proposes humanistic interventions centered on the recovery of interpersonal relations.

About the Author:

Elias K. Bongmba is Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Rice University.

Review:

"Dr. Bongmba has given us a testimony of his concern and love for his people. It is a erudite and engaging story of a commitment to the best values in human solidarity."-- V.Y. Mudimbe, Newman Ivey White Professor of Literature, Duke University

"Elias K. Bongmba has written an important contribution to the contemporary discussion of the plight of the people on the African continent. Inspired by his love of Africa, this work offers the respect of a sober, critical discussion of the political realities that besiege the place of humanity's birth, while offering an analysis, with echoes of Fanon's reflection on the leadership of decolonization, that every generation should realize its mission. Those who stand in the way of breaking the grip of neocolonization and opening the way for the postcolonization that beckons over the horizon are brought to task in this powerfully written, poignant text. I expect this book to become a classic work in political thought, ethics, and social criticism."--Lewis R. Gordon, Laura H. Carnell University Professor of Philosophy, Temple University, and author of Existentia Africana.
"An anguished and ecstatic work showing Africa's seemingly infinite capacity for self-renewal. With its political gospel of love, Bongmba's is a distinct voice in current normative critiques of African postcolonial societies."--Emmanuel Eze, Department of Philosophy, DePaul University
