The evolution of student activism in sub-Saharan Africa is crucial to understanding the process of democratic struggle and change in Africa. Focusing on the recent period of 'democratic transitions' in the 1990s, Leo Zeilig discusses the widespread involvement of student activism in democratic struggles across contemporary Africa and focuses on two case studies, Senegal and Zimbabwe. He provides an historical examination of the student-intelligentsia on the continent that played a crucial role in the independence struggles across much of Africa, leading and organising nationalist movements and outlines the development of grass-root activism. Zeilig demonstrates how students shape and are shaped by national processes of political change and popular protest and reveals both the continuities and transformations in student activism in an era of austerity, crisis and poverty.

MEDIA REVIEWS

""This book should be welcomed as a remarkable attempt to elucidate an important issue in contemporary social sciences in Africa that has not aroused much attention among researchers...this book could be a harbinger of a new radical Africanist scholars' generation.'""--Pascal Bianchini, Journal of Asian and African Studies

''...an open and well-researched book...Gorst deserves to be better remembered and the author has done a welcome service in making this possible...''-- The Overseas Pensioners

''Zeilig provides a graphic account of the problems afflicting Africa's higher education institutions, from physical decay of buildings to the slashing of library book and journal stocks, from spiralling student fees and living costs to overcrowded classrooms and inadequate teaching.''-- International Socialism
