A Decade of Democracy in Africa (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology)
Brill Academic Publishers | 2001-05 | ISBN: 9004122443 | 158 pages | PDF | 1 MB

The democratic experiment in Africa has had a chequered history over the 1990s.

Past experience from Botswana, South-Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Madagascar should give the readers an understanding of democracy in Africa.
