The African Condition: A Political Diagnosis
The African Condition: A Political Diagnosis
By Ali A. Mazrui
Cambridge University Press, 1980, 192 pp

Once again Mazrui sashays blithely through history, covering a span from the Garden of Eden to nuclear holocaust. As usual with this author the byways are many and varied, including, for example, digressions upon Edmund Burke, women's liberation, and the Japanese fishing industry.
