Reflections on the Struggle for Democracy in Africa
Issa G. Shivji
Neoliberal policies promised to correct multiple distortions in postcolonial Africa. But democratic politics, land reform, rights and freedom all suffered. Shivji calls for Africa-centred thinking that embraces the continent's right to self-determination.

Issa G. Shivji
