This collection of empirical and theoretical studies of social movements in Africa is a corrective to a literature that has largely ignored that continent. It shows that Africa’s social movements have distinctive features that are related to its specific history.

From the Back Cover:

Mobilization against apartheid, the campaign against blood diamonds, the women's movement in Liberia, where Africa's first female head of state was elected in 2005 these are all examples of socially based movements that have had a major effect on Africa's recent history. Yet the most influential theories concerning social movements worldwide have paid little heed to Africa, basing themselves more often on cases drawn from other continents. This volume draws together contributions from some leading writers on social movements in Africa, setting empirical studies alongside a couple of theoretical chapters. Africa s social movements have distinctive features that are related to the continent s specific history.
