In this authoritative work, a scholar with long experience in the continent construes his subject broadly to include the extensive complex of factors affecting the ability of African states to carry on the business of modernization and consolidation of political institutions. Adding considerable depth with a thorough look at colonial and precolonial history, he considers an impressive range of subjects, including ethnicity, urbanization, the economic crisis, party politics, the military, apartheid and U.S. policy.
