The Emergence of New States in Africa



The liberation of Asian and African countries from European colonial rule following World War II changed the geo-political map of the world. Today it is no longer enough to be familiar with the history, society and policy of Europe and America if one wants to understand the political, economic, social and normative facets of the contemporary international system.


Written by leading scholars, this series provides basic information on Africa, including various patterns of colonial rule; economic and social modernization processes during the colonial period; the emergence of national anti-colonial movements in Africa; the struggle against European culture and the crystallization of regime patterns in Africa.
