Readings in African Politics provides an overview of key topics and themes that collectively contribute to an understanding of politics in Africa. The selections included here come from a wide range of Western and non-Western sources and together represent core knowledge in the field of African politics. Topic areas covered are methods for appraising the modern African state, approaches to understanding African states and their politics, dimensions of regional conflict, conflict between traditional and modern values, the politics of new social forces, and the meaning of contemporary trends.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The authors deliver a great package of geographical and thematic material. It's useful. - Rene Pelissier 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 Villalon, 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
