Summary

This groundbreaking book makes sense of the complexities and dynamics of post-colonial politics, illustrating how post-colonial theory has marginalised a huge part of its constituency, namely Africa.
Politics and Post-Colonial Theory traces how African identity has been constituted and reconstituted by examining issues such as:
* negritude
* the rise of nationalism
* decolonisation.
The book also questions how helpful post-colonial analysis can be in understanding the complexities which define institutions including:
* the nation-state
* civil society
* human rights
* citizenship.
Politics and Post-colonial Theory bravely breaks down disciplinary boundaries. Its radical vision will be essential reading for all those engaged in Politics, post-colonial studies and African studies.
