About this book


This book is aimed at providing a framework for research into African issues in the twenty-first century. Apart from its African-centred approach, it argues that previously marginalised areas of research require in-depth study. It also introduces new areas of interest absent in existing works. The book pays particular attention to the relative success of African countries and regions in their attempt to find solutions to Africa's problems and the changing role of African states in international relations.
