9781588265517: Politics in Francophone Africa

The fourteen countries in west and equatorial Africa that formed the heart of what was once France s African colonial empire all independent now for more than four decades still retain French as an official language, remain attached to French culture, and maintain political links with France. Each country, however, has developed its own distinctive brand of politics. Victor Le Vine traces the political evolution of these countries, exploring the elements that have shaped their particular political dynamics while allowing them to remain part of a unique francophone sociopolitical community.

Le Vine s provocative discussion of topics ranging from the colonial context, political culture, and religion to redemocratization, informal politics, and international relations offers a comprehensive, unique perspective on the workings of this relatively little-known group of states.

Review:

A fresh and sweeping survey of ... the fourteen countries of Francophone Africa. An excellent book. --Mathurin C. Houngnikpo, African Studies Review

A masterful examination of much neglected Francophone countries of West Africa.... Both erudite and accessible. --Richard Peck, Africa Today

Magisterial in analytic reach and encyclopedic in coverage.... Highly recommended. --Choice
