About this title

Synopsis:

Ali Mazrui has been described as one of the most original thinkers that Africa has produced, and one of the top 100 living public intellectuals in the world today. This volume uses Mazrui's life and work as a guide towards explaining the historical impact of black public intellectuals such as Julius K. Nyerere, Patrice Lumumba and Barrack Obama. The book explores not only politics and academics, but also religion, gender, class and civil-military relations, bringing together into the black experience both Plato's concept of the "philosopher King" and V.I. Lenin's notion of the 'intelligentsia' ______________________________ Dr Seifudein Adem is Associate Director of the Institute of Global Cultural Studies and Associate Professor of Political Science at the State University of New York in Binghamton in the United States. Dr. Adem's books include Paradigm Lost, Paradigm Regained: The Worldview of Ali A. Mazrui (2002), Anarchy, Order and Power in World Politics (2002) and Hegemony and Discourse (2005). He is currently working on Professor Mazrui's intellectual biography. Dr. Adem is also the Vice President of the New York African Studies Association. Publication date: November 2010
